cymatics Introduction


Vibration underpins all matter in the universe. No matter can exist without vibration.

The CymaScope is the first scientific instrument that can give a visual image of sound and vibration in ways previously hidden from view. When the microscope and telescope were invented they opened vistas on realms that were not even suspected to exist. The CymaScope holds the same potential as the microscope and telescope and its applications are beginning to touch a broad range of human endeavor. This web site is constantly updated so please visit us every few weeks for the very latest in cymatics research. Our ongoing mission is to support and advance the emergent science of cymatics.


"Nothing tends so much to the advancement of knowledge as the application of a new instrument".

Sir Humphry Davy (Michael Faraday's mentor)

Cymatics Intro : What is Cymatics?

Cymatics is the science of sound made visible.
It is based on the principle that when sound encounters a membrane such as your skin or the surface of water, it imprints an invisible pattern of energy. In other words, the periodic vibrations in the sound sample are converted and become periodic water ripples, creating beautiful geometric patterns that reveal the once hidden realm of sound. If we could see the sounds around us with our eyes we would see myriads of holographic bubbles, each with a kaleidoscopic-like pattern its surface. The CymaScope, in a sense, allows us to image a circular section through a holographic sound bubble. Developed by  John Stuart Reid in the UK, the CymaScope reveals the once hidden realm of sound. The CymaScope, like the invention of the microscope and telescope, opens a realm not previously suspected to exist; a whole new world of visible sound.
