I work for a leading VFX firm (www.dneg.com) and having recently worked with Kip Thorn on Interstellar, we are interested in carrying on the tradition of collaboration with the scientific community on a new cymatics inspired film. I would love to speak with you. If your interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I can then follow up with a phone call or visit to your facilities as we are based in London.
I just read your article about sound being more of a bubble or sphere than a wave. Do you know if anyone is working on an iPhone or Android app that would allow someone to visually experiment with Cymatics? If they aren't I wish someone would. It would be a fantastic tool to see sound in a Sphere as well as a typical Cymatic plate view.
That's very exciting to hear about your book, I'll most definitely be one of the first in line to pick it up once available. =]
Thank you for the information about the bass, I actually just noticed that very thing last night when experimenting with different signals going to the water. Longer tones with gradual amplitude and frequency changes definitely gave better and cleaner results. Having produced a lot of dance and electronic music I have a fascination also of how various beats and percussion sounds interfere and interact with tones. But as I've been learning more about the affect of sound on water and cells however I sense my music will start evolving accordingly, and I've always been a lover of melody above everything. In time I hope to put up some video to go with music that creates pleasant imagery in the water.
Good idea compressing the bass too, I'll have to try some of that in the studio to cut out those low frequency percussion pulses and see what happens!
