Visualization of sounds

Researches about how can sound be visual.

As my interest in sound art is increasing, I started doing some further researches on how other artists worked with the visualisation of sounds. I’ve already been looking up quite a few artists in the past but this time I found an article that summaries the artworks of some artists who work with sounds and I was really impressed by some of them such as Daniel Palacios, Tokujin Yoshioka and Nigel Standford. The interesting aspect that groups all of their works is the fact that they all use science to create something almost magical. https://99designs.co.uk/blog/design-other/sound-visualization-design-inspiration/

Cymatics

Nigel Standford’s Cymatics is definitely a piece that inspired me a lot since the relationship between the music and the effects of it on the elements is so immediate.

This video gave me so many ideas about future interactive installations I could create with the help of science. The experiments that particularly fascinate me are the ones in which they use water and fire. I imagine them on a large scale with people being able to safely interact with them.
