Welcome to Sonic Age America
Great customer service and unrivaled innovation make Sonic Age America first in
your search for information about cymatics--the science of visual sound.
We are four dedicated individuals with a passion for cymatics, the emergent
science that's poised to blossom into every field of human endeavor. Within this
decade we predict that cymatics will positively affect the lives of millions of
people via medical science; cymatic discoveries will be made in many other
fields from astrophysics to zoology.
Sonic Age America is a division of UK-based Sonic Age Ltd. Both
companies were founded by John Stuart Reid, acoustic pioneer and inventor of
the CymaScope Pro, the world's first commercial instrument that renders sound
visible in water.
Our mission is to advance and support cymatics, including development of
therapeutic modalities and exploring applications in all the sciences.
