Cymatics – See the vibrations of music take on an art form

This video is entitled ‘Cymatics,’ and cymatics is the science of creating visualizations of audio frequencies.

On his website, Nigel Stanford, a musician from New Zealand explains how he became interested in visualizing sound:
“In 1999 I watched a documentary on ‘Synesthesia’ – a disorder that effects the audio and visual functions of the brain. People with the disorder hear a sound when they see bright colors, or see a color when they hear various sounds. I don’t have it (I don’t think), but I have always felt that bass frequencies are red, and treble frequencies are white.
This got me thinking that it would be cool to make a music video where every time a sound plays, you see a corresponding visual element. Many years later, I saw some videos about Cymatics – the science of visualizing audio frequencies, and the idea for the video was born.”
Cymatics (from Greek: κῦμα “wave”) is the study of visible sound co vibration, a subset of modal phenomena.

I bet you never heard of Fritz Willis

Unless.. you like Pin-up Girls.
In the era of Katherine Hepburn, 1930’s black and white movies, Warner Bros hired Franz Willis to be their production-design and publicity artist.
In 1946, Esquire announced an important new feature entitled the Esquire Gallery of Glamour & the magazine selected Fritz Willis to supply the inaugural illustration – it was his first published pin-up, and it launched a spectacular thirty-year career.

Willis’ work was usually executed in oils on a canvas placed over illustration board; some of his magazine illustrations and pinups of the late 1940s were painted in gouache on board. Most images were about 18 x 24 inches (45.7 x 61 cm), but the major pieces could be larger.

“It`s not about seducing men, it”s about embracing womanhood”

“I love to swim in the nude and roam around the house in the nude. You’re just as free as a bird!”

Photoshop on a video

Musicl Video: The video camera totally modifies Boggie’s look, and towards to end cuts the image in half so we can see the difference of the image they’ve made and what she really looks like. It totally brings our her point: my image can change, but I’m more than just the image. There is also a Hungarian Version of the song circulating on youtube.

The Meaning of Boggie’s Nouveau Parfum: They can’t change me. They can change my image, but I’m more than image. No matter how much perfume, no matter what type of image you try to put on, in the end you’re always yourself. But can you learn to be yourself?

Ask Yourself: Do I identify myself with my image? Am I able to just be myself, and accept being myself?
