Cymatics uses a simple vibrating platform connected to a piezoelectricsounder mounted on a plastic tube. The piezoelectric sounder is connectedto a signal generator and a tone of say 2 KHz is dialled up. On the platformis the material that will be affected by the tone whether it be salt, sand,water or a powder. As different materials respond differently to differenttones.In Hans Jenny’s experiments he used a combination of sand andlycopodium powder. The lycopodium powder moves to the centre of thefield and the sand moves out to the edges forming the lines that representthe field lines. When two frequencies are applied to the sand mixture atonce, it begins to pulsate or beat. When a tone is applied to a layer of standard turpentine a regular latticework form appears, and when a tone isapplied to glycerine, an insect like figure appears and moves like a worm orsea creature through water.When a black liquid is dripped into a transparent fluid, the vibrations nowproduce circular eddy formations; there is always a pair of eddy formations,which continue to form two by two for as long as the tone continues.These eddy formations that are generated in the liquid are similar to theones formed in the cochlea of our ears whenever we hear any type of sound.A plastic substance will always form into ball like shapes; to begin withsmaller ball shapes jiggle around slowly forming and blending with other balls to form larger sphere shapes from the same continuous tone.The human voice can also be used to affect matter in the same way as thetone, a sequence of notes sung will form different shapes and a visualinterpretation of melody can be seen.
