Video Selection






The study of animal sounds has previously used the Spectrograph or Sonagraph instrument. The Spectrograph or Sonagraph are forms of spectrum analysis that provide a three-dimensional representation of a sound signal, the three co-ordinates being frequency, time and intensity. Intensity is typically represented by shading or color. The CymaScope is a new instrument that provides a cymatic analog of what our eyes would see if we could see sound. The CymaScope gives a 2D slice through the sonic bubble, showing us the interior structures of a sound sample. Still photographs can be analysed to show the geometry of given a moment in time of an animal sound and real time video of animal sounds are now possible, allowing the dynamics to be studied.
