Watch the magic of sound and science in ‘Cymatics’ | The Verge

“Tallying up nearly two million views across Vimeo and YouTube in two weeks, my favorite thing on the internet today is still “Cymatics,” a music video from Nigel Stanford from his new album Solar Echoes. Stanford put together a series of science experiments that demonstrate how sound can move matter around and combined them into a pretty solid music track and a very awesome video. As explained in the making-of post, Stanford and director Shahir Daud filmed the demonstrations first and then took the sound that made them and created the track with it second — but don’t let that take away from the magic here. The magic is science, and also the magic is a dude wearing a full-body chain mail Faraday suit getting zapped with a Tesla coil while using a kick drum to turn a stream of water into a perfectly formed spiral. Science!”
