Inspired by Cymatics

Cymatics, from Greek: κῦμα, meaning "wave", is a subset of modal vibrational phenomena. The term was coined by Hans Jenny (1904-1972), a Swiss follower of the philosophical school known as anthroposophy. To show this in an experiment typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste or liquid. Different patterns emerge in the excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency. []

In plain old english, the medium, say sand or salt, shifts as the frequency of sound is changed making different patterns. The sand or salt is directly affected by the sound and vibration changes.

Take a look at the videos below for more details and some examples of Cymatic experiments.

The sound, played at varying levels of MHz (megahertz), when applied to physical matter begins to influence and affect the state of that physical matter, wether it be a bowl of water or more importantly for us, a group of human cells.
