Cymatics is the process of making sound visible (also sound outside the range we as humans can hear) by vibrating a medium. Cymatics proofs, by visualizing audio frequencies, that vibrations have an impact on matter. Cymatics makes a direct translation of sounds into geometrical shapes. The science of visible sound.
Theme: Does a building has its own unique acoustic signature? Can it be enhanced to support human health and well-being? Geometry is the visible form of sound vibration. Therefore buildings and their components like materials, colours, shapes, angles etc., are in a way ‘frozen’ music. Architecture is a Symphony of Form.
Scientific research in the related fields of Sound Therapy, Music Therapy and Music Medicine are revealing that audible sound and music have the power to boost our immune system, restore balance by activating bodily systems that are in a quiescent sleep state, oxygenate our blood, (a key component in the body’s healing mechanisms), and much more.
