During my experiments with cymatics, I’ve encountered a number of interesting, unusual, and hypnotic visual behaviors. The following is a continuous recording of early cymatics experiments that capture some of the chaotic, non-periodic behaviors that would emerge.

A continuous audio signal was sent to a speaker, and the vibrations from the audio affected a shallow dish of water attached to the center of the speaker cone. The visible forms are created by the reflection of light on the surface of the moving water. The audio in the video was later recorded and added.
