Capturing Capacity

Animated Paint Via Vibrations by Martin Klimas.

Ever wondered what invisible sound waves look like?  Ever thought of what the horns and bass lines in James Brown’s “Sex Machine” might look like if you could see their sound form?  Attempting to make such optically imperceptible vibrations graspable for our visual range, Martin Klimas pooled paint on a taught piece of rubber directly above a speaker and captured the resulting action.  Playing very specific songs (Pink Floyd, Miles Davis, Daft Punk, etc.) Klimas captured some incredible fluid phyiscs and figures that will make you think a bout the power of sound. Here are the fruits of his experiments with audio’s ability to make paint dance and explode.
