Cymatics now has a place in a Cirque Du Soleil show!
Over the past few months I have been working on a cymatics commission for Cirque Du Soleil, a film clip of cymatics footage to be used in the new show “TOTEM.”
The finished cymatics piece has been approved and is now in TOTEM, which is currently playing in the Netherlands. It will be coming back to the United States this spring.
I worked with Pedro Pires, the “image content designer” for the show. It was an honor to work with Pedro who has won an Emmy for outstanding visual effects and was artistic director of visual effects for the film The Red Violin. You can hear him talking about creating images for TOTEM in the video clip above.
The cymatics images I created for Cirque Du Soleil involved a circular cymatics plate with salt, vibrated by a wave driver. The images needed to have sufficient resolution to be projected about 20 feet in width, down into the ring and over the performers in the show.
It is exciting to know that cymatics is now featured in an international Cirque Du Soleil show, to be seen by thousands of people around the world over the next few years.
