Nigel Stanford – ‘Cymatics’ [Review]
TMMP is all about boundary-breaking – and the video for ambient musician Nigel Stanford’s Cymatics definitely fits the bill. Whereas many electronic artists settle for stuffing their videos full of barely-dressed women and fully-clothed dudes posing somewhere in the background, Stanford’s team have taken a very literal approach to the visuals for Cymatics.
Cymatics is the science of visualising audio frequencies – and this video demonstrates a number of experimental possibilities to awe-inspiring effect. Expect fire, weirdly warping water, Tesla coils, and more – not to mention the actual audio track itself, which is pretty fucking banging.
