Seeing Sound: Couscous, Steel Cafe Tables, String Instruments, Math

Note that the different Chladni (say “clad-knee”) Figures he generates corresponds to different pitches (i..e, frequencies) and timbres (think “flavors of sound”), and that he does this by creating a node (which is technically any point in a wave where it crosses zero, and literally the places where a vibrating thing—like a guitar or cello string—is not moving).

All of which is neat, but mostly I just posted it because it looks hella sweeeeet!
