Cymatics – Frequency and Form

Cymatics, commonly called “visible sound”, is a study that demonstrates how frequency affects matter and creates form.

Although names generate a sound when spoken and hence have a relationship to form, I suggest the relationship of a name’s frequency affects form at levels deeper than the spoken word.

The relationship of frequency to form is all encompassing and can be found throughout life, from the patterns on butterfly wings, bird feather designs, tortoise shells and to the basic structure and design of all life forms.

To view the relationship of frequency and form, Google Cymatics

and watch some of the videos noted below or pursue some of the books on the topic.


This video demonstrates how frequencies of sound affect particles into various forms.

Forms become more explicit as frequency increases.
