Cymascope - Sound Made Visiable

Here are some links and excerpts of websites that I've found that is interesting reading. Please take some time to follow up.
First, to understand the Cymascope, you first need to understand Cymatics:
Excerpt taken from Wikipedia on Cymatics:

Cymatics (from Greekκῦμα "wave") 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.[1] 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[2] or advanced such as the CymaScope, a laboratory instrument that makes visible the inherent geometries within sound and music.

The generic term for this field of science is the study of modal phenomena, retitled Cymatics by Hans Jenny, a Swiss medical doctor and a pioneer in this field. The word Cymatics derives from the Greek 'kuma' meaning 'billow' or 'wave,' to describe the periodic effects that sound and vibration has on matter.
The study of the patterns produced by vibrating bodies has a venerable history. One of the earliest to record that an oscillating body displayed regular patterns was Galileo Galilei. In Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems (1632), he wrote:
As I was scraping a brass plate with a sharp iron chisel in order to remove some spots from it and was running the chisel rather rapidly over it, I once or twice, during many strokes, heard the plate emit a rather strong and clear whistling sound: on looking at the plate more carefully, I noticed a long row of fine streaks parallel and equidistant from one another. Scraping with the chisel over and over again, I noticed that it was only when the plate emitted this hissing noise that any marks were left upon it; when the scraping was not accompanied by this sibilant note there was not the least trace of such marks.

On July 8, 1680, Robert Hooke was able to see the nodal patterns associated with the modes of vibration of glass plates. Hooke ran a bow along the edge of a glass plate covered with flour, and saw the nodal patterns emerge.[4][5]
In 1787, Ernst Chladni repeated the work of Robert Hooke and published "Entdeckungen über die Theorie des Klanges" ("Discoveries in the Theory of Sound"). In this book, Chladni describes the patterns seen by placing sand on metal plates which are made to vibrate by stroking the edge of the plate with a bow.
Cymatics was explored by Hans Jenny in his 1967 book, Kymatik (translated Cymatics).[6] Inspired by systems theory and the work of Ernst Chladni, Jenny began an investigation of periodicphenomena but especially the visual display of sound. He used standing wavespiezoelectric amplifiers, and other methods and materials.


Senses and Sound

Sound has structure and form, but while we can appreciate the beauty of music and birdsong, the invisibility of sound makes it difficult to study. Just as great advances in medical science have come about as the result of the microscope, and enormous strides have been made in understanding the cosmos with the telescope, the CymaScope® does for sound what the microscope and the telescope have done for medical science and cosmology.
In fact, the visual acuity of our brains is so powerful that we can make far more sense of the world and cosmos with our vision than we can with our other senses.

CymaScope® and Science

Harmonic structures imbedded in sounds and manifested on the CymaScope’s membrane create CymaGlyphs®. These patterns take form in particulate matter or water, which gathers in areas where there is no vibration. Each CymaGlyph is effectively a ‘negative’ of the vibratory response of the membrane to a given sound. By studying the CymaGlyphs of pure sounds, musical instrument sounds, and animal sounds, for example, it is possible to learn much about the nature of life and the forces of creation.

Sacred Geometry, Sonic Codes... Awakening the Light Body Matrix

Excerpts taken from "The Template"

The activation of the sustained reconnection of 33 circuits of Human bio-circuitry via a resonant response to the synergy of the geometric and sonic codes of creation.

We are the amalgamation of various visible and invisible energy systems that together generate the Human hologram. The primary system that supplies this unit with the energetic nature of Creative Intelligence that births the field is the circuitry system. At this time the circuitry system is considerably less than optimal. The fact that out of 3 billion base pair chemicals in the Human gene code only 60million are active and that we only use a fraction of our brain capacity are manifest signs that point to Human genetic modification.
Built upon the laws of resonant harmonics, creating synergy with the vibratory infrastructure of your dormant DNA, The Template is a transcendent model that offers the un-interpreted, uncensored energetic truth of Creation, delivered by the simple reconnection of electromagnetic energy via bio-circuitry.
Conscious communion with sacred geometry is a fundamental aspect of our evolutionary awakening.
The reconnection of circuitry revitalizes the endocrine system and renders us able to receive, translate and utilize the full spectrum geometries of light that we may ready ourselves for the luminous data density offered by the 2012 portal of opportunity in order to collectively stabilize a new matrix… a paradigm resonant with the integrity of light.

Funktion One Sound - That's healthy music to my ears

Funktion One loudspeakers, are the only large format touring-quality point-source cabinets that have the clarity and demands required for electronic music reproduction. Transparent, clear, and effortless, Funktion One loudspeakers are now commonly seen at top worldwide musical events.

Funktion One design places ultimate importance on sonic accuracy, there is lack of distortion and it delivers astonishing transient fidelity. Funktion One is the brainchild of sound gurus Tony Andrews and John Newsham. Their goal was to design loudspeaker systems capable of delivering the kind of sound quality that would result in a “ transcendent experience for all involved." This they have done.

The Funktion One cabinet design approach completely avoids the usual pitfalls of system EQ with its associated phase problems. This purity leads to incredible transient delivery which, combined with the sheer physicality and lack of distortion of these systems, provides the listener with totally involving and pain-free musical experience.

The award-winning technology embodied in the Funktion One cabinets is on a different plane than conventional systems, they deliver a combination of clarity, power and audio precision, despite their compact size.

We are pleased to have Team Infinity and the Funktion One on board who will be providing the constant vibrational download sessions.

Forgotten In Time: The Ancient Solfeggio Frequencies

Here is a good site on the Solfeggio Frequencies:

These original sound frequencies were apparently used in Ancient Gregorian Chants, such as the great hymn to St. John the Baptist, along with others that church authorities say were lost centuries ago. The chants and their special tones were believed to impart tremendous spiritual blessings when sung in harmony during religious masses. These powerful frequencies were rediscovered by Dr. Joseph Puleo as described in the book Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse by Dr. Leonard Horowitz. I give honor to both of these gentleman for the part they’ve played in helping return these lost frequencies back to humanity.

The Six Solfeggio Frequencies include:

UT – 396 Hz – Liberating Guilt and Fear
RE – 417 Hz – Undoing Situations and Facilitating Change
MI – 528 Hz – Transformation and Miracles (DNA Repair)
FA – 639 Hz – Connecting/Relationships
SOL – 741 Hz – Awakening Intuition
LA – 852 Hz – Returning to Spiritual Order

These frequencies and others will be demonstrated at the Soundform Experience - Sundance Film Festival 2011
