What happens when acoustics science meets music?

The effects of science are not often visible in the real life. Even though it is impossible to deny that science does its work quite effectively. But what if we tried to visualize some of the most common laws of physics using common everyday objects?

This particular idea was behind the production of the world-famous video clip by Nigel John Stanford, who decided to employ some experiments from the acoustics science to produce a truly captivating audio experience.

Experiments used in this musical performance include the Chaldni Plate, Ruben’s Tube, Tesla Coil and Ferro Fluid. It is indeed nice to watch these experiments performed in a lab setting, but their combination with an electronic music played by human artists makes the process seem more like a magic show. Which, by the way, is interesting and relaxing to watch even for those who do not like physics.
