Because the field of Cymatics is so visual, I have compiled several videos below that astound me every time I watch them.
Every one of us is hooked into sound at the deepest levels – biologically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Watch below how different kinds of sound recreate archetypal structures of nature. Like a perfect snowflake, an invertebrate, or a seed pod. Find out how cymatics is decoding the language of dolphins.
This is just the tip of the iceberg for the possibilities inherent in cymatics. The videos range in length from 2 to 6 minutes. Grab some popcorn, put your feet up and enjoy!
- The first video is a talk on Cymatics presented by Evan Grant for TED Talks.
- The second video is one of Dr. Hans Jenny’s videos, showing some of his Cymatics Soundscapes.
- The third video was submitted to YouTube by Jodina Meehan who recorded a session at a recent Cymatics Conference. Watch live demonstrations of the flute and the human voice. Find out what the sounds of a coyote, dove and cello look like on the Cymascope. This session features John Stuart Reid and Erik Larson.
- This fourth video was taken by Steven Halpern at a Cymatics Conference and shows the patterns created on the Cymascope of a recording of sacred chant he recorded in the King’s Chamber in the Great Pyramid. Remarkable!
- The fifth video is a fascinating comparison of cymatic forms with stone carvings on the Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland, built in the mid 15th century. Another carving in the chapel, the Rosslyn Stave Angel, points to 3 notes on a music staff. The music that accompanies the video was created emphasizing these 3 notes.
- For those of you who like to build things and would like to explore the cymatic forms your own voice makes, here is a link to one of our blogs that shows you how to make your own rudimentary cymatic sounder out of easily attainable materials.
- Here is a fascinating video created by musician and artist Nigel Stanford using music and cymatics, called “Cymatics: Science vs Music”.

I want to leave you with some words that were delivered to me in the middle of the night many years ago:
Sound is the energy of creation.
We are given the energy of creation itself – our voice.
And we are given the power of creation – our thought and intention.
Every one of us has this gift.
At the beginning of our earliest civilizations, sound and language was considered sacred.
Because when we speak or sing, we send into the world the energy of creation itself.
We have forgotten this. Sound and language is still sacred. What has changed is how we create with it.
We cannot stop being creators. We can only choose to create consciously or unconsciously.
