Brainwave cymatics uses an EEG headset which turns the electrical signals of the audience members’ brains into sound, which in turn is revealed via shapes on the surface of a dark liquid using a phenomonma of cymatics.
Cymatics (from Greek: κῦμα “
wave”) is the study of visible sound co 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 excitatory medium depending on the geometry of the plate and the driving frequency.
