Cymatic SoundScapes from the 60’s

The film footage seen here is from experiments performed by Swiss scientist, Dr. Hans Jenny in the 1960s. More of his experiments have been compiled into a 60-minute DVD called Cymatic SoundScapes: Bringing Matter to Life with Sound, available through the publisher at www.cymaticsource.com

Cymatics is the study of visible sound and vibration, a subset of modal phenomena. Typically the surface of a plate, diaphragm, or membrane is vibrated, and regions of maximum and minimum displacement are made visible in a thin coating of particles, paste, or liquid. Different patterns emerge in the exitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency. The apparatus employed can be simple, such as a Chladni Plate or advanced such as the CymaScope, a laboratory instrument that makes visible the inherent geometries within sound and music.

Toa Mata Band Live in Prague

In November 2014 the Toa Mata Band was guest of  Cafe Neu Romance, the World’s first international robot performance festival (part of European Robotics Week 2014) in Prague where I did some audio\video live recording while performing. Here the first 2 episodes extracted from that sessions, part of a  video-series in progress. Enjoy!

PYRAMID: stand alone step-sequencer promises

Pyramid is fully polyrhythmic. This means that you can set different and unusual time signatures on each track, to create shifted-beat sequences. Polyrhythmic constructions will bring new flavours to your productions. You can set a track with a 4/4 standard signature, and for the other tracks 5/4, 6/8, 15/8… The direct access button enables you to change the left and right numbers without limitation. It’s an incredible and easy way to add complexity to your songs!

Pyramid offers one algorithmic euclidean sequencer engine per track, auto generating uncommon and rich rhythmic patterns.
Change the number of total steps, the number of filled steps, the step width, rotate the pattern, all of this on the fly. The displayed euclidean circle helps you to visualize the pattern.
