music made visible
Please check out the website for Cymascope (music made visible), where you can see music notes as “holographic bubbles.”
musicmadevisible is a new concept in musical expression, a stream of cymatic images representing an analog of music in visual form. If our eyes could see music we would not see waves, as is commonly believed, but beautiful holographic bubbles, with shimmering kaleidoscopic patterns on their surface. The CymaScope allows us to see this previously hidden realm of beauty.
There is much more information about how this works on the website, which also has a CymaPiano. You can click on the keys to see what each note looks like. Plus there’s a “cymatics experiment,” a short video of Pink Floyd’s Welcome to the Machine. So cool!
Let’s not forget Disney Studios went there first with Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor in “Fantasia.”
(Be patient, things get interesting around the 5 minute mark…)
Love this! Thanks for posting it. I need to see Fantasia again. 🙂
I had no idea things had gotten to this point! Amazing! Just for fun, I went to the orinthology tab. It shows a picture of the cellular structure of a bird sound. Wow!
That website has a lot of external links, too. I love this video from the seeper.com website:
That video is wonderful! So much to explore!
