Fun with sound.

I’m gonna write about sound today and you’re gonna read it. I love sound, especially when it makes music.
This first one is kinda of musical. Watch the dots, it’s nice to get lost in them as they twirl. I do it at work when I don’t feel like working.

Check it out!

I don’t even know ‘what’ it really is. Watch one complete cycle of the dots (60 seconds), I love how the dissonant noise of the dots, come together in the end. While you’re on the dude’s website, check out other variations. Very interesting to say the least.

This next one is a sound experiment that involves fire, I don’t think I need to explain why this is extremely cool, plus the guy seems like a total hippie, and that makes me happy.

For this last visual representation of sound you may want to turn your speakers down, as they flip through higher and higher frequencies. Way cool!

    Wow, those were both extremely interesting. It would be neat to try either one of them. It seems like my cousin Ben was talking about a music visualization thing using fire once before… I wonder if that was anything like what he was talking about? I think it was different, but perhaps based on a similar concept. I think he was thinking of setting up a semi-permanent visualization system like that in his back yard. That would be very cool!

    That is extremely fascinating. It amazes me that such obvious geometric and symmetrical patterns emerge from the sound… and that fire thing is really cool. It makes me want to develop a physical model to explain it all… but then I’m really dumb and uneducated on the matter. Gimme physics. I lug it.

    Speaking of sound…Take this test to see if you’re tone deaf. I scored in the very good range (the bottom end, 80.6 lol) so I guess there’s hope for me yet.

    That was BAD ASS! I love sound too. It’s my favorite of all the waves.

    Thank for the warning on that last one. Which was SO AMAZING to see! Sound is a powerful thing and if correctly harnessed, a weapon as well. It can also be used as a tool, for example.. i had planters warts on the bottom of my feet when i was a teen (sorry, i dind’t say it wasn’t a gross example!) and had a 20 minute ultrasound session (or two, cant remember) and within a week they all died and fell out of my foot. Painlessly. :)

    Yay for Sound!

    what if they had used the wrong frequency and your foot fell off your foot! I bet after that you would’ve hated sound!
