Watch "Discovering CYMATICS" and see how these stunning visuals are created. Go behind the scenes and take a look at the creative process behind the cymatic compositions.
"Using an iMac, Ableton Live, Akai MPK249 keyboard and APC control surface, a powered speaker, a bottle cap of liquid, and an iPhone 6 with EpocCam HD app I am able to conduct cymatic experiments and observe them in real-time." -Thomas B. Carsecka

TEN STEPS - The composed music was extracted from Finale music notation software and converted into MIDI data. The data was then orchestrated using electronic instruments to create a virtual performance of the composition. This performance was recorded in multiple channels, mixed down in ProTools, and converted into an audio file that was distributed to the live performers along with the printed sheet music. This process made it possible for players to rehearse parts independently, be prepared for full ensemble rehearsal, and hear the overall sound and direction of a new piece.
Cymatic Revelations is a multi-media composition that aims to artistically reveal the power of vibration through the synchronous use of cymatic pattern imaging, real-time video projection, and live music. When musical vibrations are channeled through a malleable medium such as a liquid, the vibrations cause the medium to arrange itself into visible geometries known as cymatic patterns. Being that these patterns are created by the sounds themselves, the projected visual elements are used to visually connect the audience to what they hear. While incorporating archetypal elements of light, reflection, and symmetry, Cymatic Revelations utilizes cutting-edge music technologies to expose this common thread of vibration in the world around us. The piece combines the real-time generation of cymatic events, videos, and slideshows, with a live ensemble that features both electronic and acoustic instruments.
