Researchers in the United States and Great Britain are currently using cymatics to create a visual alphabet of dolphin sounds, in hopes of finally decoding the language of dolphins.

Using high definition audio recordings of dolphins, the research team, headed by English acoustics engineer and cymatics researcher, John Stuart Reid, and Florida-based dolphin researcher, Jack Kassewitz, has been able to use cymatics to image the imprint that a dolphin sound makes in water.

They have used cymatics to create “reproducible patterns that are expected to form the basis of a lexicon of dolphin language, each pattern representing a dolphin ‘picture word’” similar to the way Egyptian Hieroglyphics function.

Kassewitz says, “there is strong evidence that dolphins are able able to ’see’ with sound…” And that is why creating images of their language through cymatics may allow us to understand for the first time how dolphin language really works. Read full article here

Hello Jodina,
I have been enjoying the content that you have been putting togather and the information has been quite helpful in my work. I make music with plants and have een taking the frequency of the music and running it through the cymascope app. I am attemting to create a new way to experience the natural world around us. I would love to speak with you more about this type of work and your thoughts on it. Please feel free to contact me by email to discuss. Cheers!
