Miles Davis – “Pharaoh’s Dance”
"How do you paint with sound? It’s a good question and the answer comes from German photographer Martin Klimas. He starts by putting different colored paint on top of a speaker over some translucent material, then cranks up the volume. The vibrations of the speaker shoot the paint into the air creating beautiful patterns and sculptural forms, and Klimas snaps them with his camera while in flight."
"Each image becomes an abstract portrait of whatever song he plays—from Miles Davis to Kraftwerk. The New York Times says he spent six months and about 1,000 shots to get the required results and also that his influences were abstract art and Hans Jenny, a scientist versed in cymatics , the study of waves and vibrations."
"From deafening monkey howls to snapping crustacean claws, animals use powerful sounds to do everything from claim territory to stun prey.
"There’s such an enormous range of abilities and loudness in animals, it's very easy to get swept up by it all. I just love this stuff," said bioacoustician Christopher Clark of Cornell University.
While every animal sound is amazing in its own right, the result of millions of years of evolution, Clark and other researchers have a few favorites. In this gallery we review the best, and look at the physics that produce them."
