Dubstep on Cymatics


#1

Hello.

I just learned today about cymatics, the science of making sounds visible / see how sound affects matter via different kinds of plates and surfaces, or even fluids.

I understand so far that different frequencies (different sine waves depending on their hz) generate different patterns on these surfaces, depending if they are basses or trebles.

I am very curious to know if you have examples or videos recording the effects on one of these plates generated by dubstep. Protip: I bet it must look quite trippy!

was a thread on this in old forum
pretty amazing eh?
did some experimenting myself
and got the liquid (it wasn’t water, something thicker…forgotten what) forming insane shapes

edit: I think it was cornflour mixed with water

I can’t remember what it was called, but there’a a video where some people make a visual eq out of fire then play some dubstep through it. Brostep tbf, but no one really does shit with jah 420 beats. You could probably find it relatively easy
