I thought it was pretty cool. My cat however kinda went a little nuts with the higher pitched sounds

Take a tab and you will see more than sound waves :P

On a note akin to what mogman45 was saying... it's called crystal harmonics... the theory is, that everything matter in our world has a specific frequency and resonance to it that, if you play the sound loud enough, it almost immediately shatters. Sound waves are pretty powerful things.

it's called a chladni plate and every note, or pitch will make a different pattern.

That was amazing.

And whoever posted this, thanks. I have a physics project about sound waves that I can incorporate this into. :D

thats really cool. as nerdy as it sounds, i should totally show my physics teacher this... we're studying waves, and this is WAY more interesting than what we're doing right now...

The waves on the boards are the resonance frequencies of the board in its vibrational modes, not actually of the sound.

A certain frequency in the sound will excite the board at that frequency causing some portions to vibrate heavily (non-white sections since the salt is vibrated away) and vibrate non (white sections).

For futhur imagery, if you keep the board vibrating at a certain resonance frequency, the board will eventually crack at the white line locations just like how bending a paper clip back and forth will break it at the bending point.

I've seen this before! I love it.
Anybody seen the one with polyps that's like, 45 minutes long?

any other musicians out there who noticed that the changes seemed to correspond to the overtone overtone series?

There was something similar at the old science museum in Birmingham, but that one you had a bow to use on the edge of the plate. There was a square one and one shaped like a violin. Not as cool as this though!
