A presentation of the ongoing practical research of Dan Blore and Jan Meinema into capturing Cymatic sound sculptures using various liquids and bespoke made physical wave drivers. Combining the two to reveal unique natural shapes and patterns. Images from the sound sculptures are created in real time, and without the aid of computers. The practice is inspired by the work of Cymatics pioneer Dr Hans Jenny during the 50’s and 60’s. The recent research focus has been with revealing more detailed visualisations of harmonic content within the sound sources.
