John Stuart Reid, inventor of the Cymascope, joins Heart Rising to share his incredible story.
Join us as he leads us on a journey into the visible beauty of sound.
We think of sound as a wave, but that "wave" actually radiates out in all directions and becomes a bubble. Sound is not the flat wave we think it to be, but an intricate, beautiful sphere. Using the Cymascope, it is possible to map the way that sound moves, and reveal a hidden world of great beauty.
