SGP 2011: Visualising Vibrations
August 15, 2011 by Zoe
One is a beatboxer: twice crowned UK champion, recently enamoured with the means to visualise sound. The other: our physics maestro, who last year built not one but two Reubens tubes, which reveals the shapes of sonic waves with a string of dancing flames.
In other words: a match made in heaven. With Chladni patterns, cornstarch and sonic fire, Steve Mould and Reeps One made beautiful music together, transforming sound into light and the auditory into the optical with flames, smoke and mirrors.
Magic? Nope. Sublime? You bet.
