He is also a jazz musician and one of the founders of Stanford University’s jazz studies program. He has written about Hans Jenny and cymatics in his book Healing Songs (2006).


John Stuart Reid is an English acoustics pioneer, scientist, and inventor, on a mission to educate and inspire the world in the field of cymatics, the study of visible sound, and to promote the field of sound therapy, supporting one’s body to heal naturally. His CymaScope invention has changed our perception of sound forever, and his cymatic research continues to elevate this important new field in the scientific arena. Much more information is available at

Gabriel Kelemen, Ph.D., is an artist and researcher, lecturer, and head of the Art History and Theory department of the Faculty of Arts and Design at West University of Timişoara, Romania. For almost 40 years he has studied the phenomenon of how stationary waves arise in liquids as they are stimulated by audible sound frequencies. He is truly a pioneering figure in the field of cymatics— experimenting and illustrating not only the diverse geometric patterns that occur on the surface of the liquids, but also clearly illustrating the complex dynamic forces that generate these intricate and orderly patterns both experimentally, and throughout the vastness of nature. 

Alexander Lauterwasser’s interest in water began early, having grown up on the shores of Lake Constance, where many waters meet at the confluence of Germany, Switzerland and Austria. He, like Hans Jenny, could be described as a natural scientist with an abiding interest in studying how vibrational processes generate prototypical forms of nature. As a philosopher and a third-generation photographer, he has authored detailed studies on animal morphology, including an encyclopedic volume on the genesis and development of the “visual language” of the markings of tortoise shells, and among other things, their similarity to the patterns of the Tao te Ching.


In addition to his wide-ranging research in the life sciences, he works full-time as a psychologist with young people in a drug therapy center in Salem, Germany.

Nigel Stanford is a New Zealand composer, who after watching a documentary on synesthesia, got to thinking that it would be cool to make a music video where every time a sound plays, you see a corresponding visual element. Many years later, he saw some videos about cymatics— the science of visualizing audio frequencies— and the idea for the video “Cymatics” was born. Learn more at


Jacob Adlington is a visual sound artist and photographer from New Zealand, based in Brisbane, Australia. His deep belief in the power of music and sound to shape our realities is what inspires his passion to bring sound vibrations into visual form. His mission is to share the beauty of sound as art, as a healing pathway to the sacred within. This dynamic dance of the physics of vibration reminds us how magical and interconnected everything truly is. For more information and to see Jacob’s art, visit


Rachael Linton, MDes, enjoys an inspired and prolific career as an artist. In each of her works of art, she aspires to find new ways to explore the intricacies of cymatics. A painter, musician, and multimedia artist, Linton has exhibited her work throughout her home country of New Zealand, as well as internationally. As a gilder, radiance and illumination are quite familiar to her— and she strives to convey them through her art. She’s also developed kinetic art installations that project illuminated imagery of dynamic, cymatic sound-figures, to create immersive and interactive experiences for her audiences. She uses digital video and analog sound to entertain, educate and transform her viewers, weaving harmony and chaos to create ripples in the fabric of space-time.
