This past Sunday was my birthday and as you can see we had a lot of fun playing with cymatics devices in my studio downtown. The device you see in the photos is a steel plate on a wave driver, I am playing songs through the amp and driver with my iPhone.
As you can see the kids at the party were completely fascinated by the cymatics images and spent the evening playing at the different cymatics “stations” I had set up. (The red-haired baby on my lap and the blond boy right next to her are mine).
There were three different ways to experience cymatics: the wave driver setup you see here, plus a voicebox to sing into with a mic and amp, and a box with two tonascopes on top facing one another so that two people could sing into them and see the difference in their voices.
Thanks to everyone who came and made the party a success, I hope to have more events like this at my studio in the future.
P.S. RED ALERT! My kickstarter campaign for the cymatics iPhone app only has 8 days left! Please go put in a pledge today, because the app will only get funded if we reach our goal before July 4th… We need a big push to put us over the top, so don’t wait, go do it now!
And if you have already pledged, THANK YOU so much! What you can still do is spread the word by “liking” the project here and grabbing the link to it and emailing it out to your friends who might like cymatics. Every new person who sees it helps
