Based on the groundbreaking cymatics work of Dr. Hans Jenny.
The stunning array of figures and flowing patterns seen in this program portray actual physical phenomena - not computer simulations - showing the effect of sound over matter! Watch as complex and intricate forms, often resembling living organisms, arise from inert powders, pastes and liquids, solely through the influence of sound.
This new DVD is a compilation from the now discontinued videos entitled Cymatics: The Healing Nature of Sound and Cymatic SoundScapes.
Cymatics: The Healing Nature of Sound
Highlights of Swiss scientist, Dr. Hans Jenny's pioneering experiments showing how audible sound can excite such diverse substances as lycopodium powder, iron filings, water, glycerin and turpentine into life-like, flowing forms. These patterns reflect a variety of forms found throughout nature, and viewing their dynamics elicits an intuitive understanding of the invisible forces which underlie natural processes, from the movements of amoebae to the formation of galaxies.
In the second part of this program Jonathan Goldman, New Age author (Healing Sounds) and musician interviews British physician, Dr. Peter Guy Manners, who developed a therapeutic device based on the principles of Cymatics. In Part Three, Dr. Manners demonstrates the Cymatic Applicator, which resonates body tissue with audible sound.
This film details Dr. Jenny's experiments using audible frequencies to create complex flowing patterns in lycopodium powder. Different frequencies generate circulatory patterns which closely resemble sun spots and solar flares, or the formation and rotation of spiral galaxies. Unusual three-dimensional formations arise which seem to defy gravity and laws of motion, but all adhere strictly to the dynamics of the generating tone.
This program also shows how a semi-liquid paste creates intricate and elaborate geomorphic patterns as it solidifies under the effect of vibration. The correlation with actual geological phenomena is striking, and provides a basis for understanding how oscillation is involved in the realm of the earth sciences.
