The awe-inspiring images by photographer and cymatics researcher, Alexander Lauterwasser, shed new light on the famous sand figures of Ernst Chladni, which fascinated Napoleon at the turn of the 19th Century. Following up on Dr. Hans Jenny’s experiments in the 1950’s and 60s, Lauterwasser creates a new scientific art form for the 21st Century. As audible sound frequencies animate small samples of water, delicate harmonic patterns emerge, their structures mirroring those found throughout the natural world— from single-celled sea creatures to the shapes of galaxies. Drawing upon classical literature and the world’s Wisdom Traditions, the author penetrates the invisible world of vibration’s subtle influences, revealing the universality which underlies the multiplicity of form. 



“...brings Dr. Hans Jenny’s Cymatics into the 21st Century…. Breath-taking images of sounds shaping water are supported by a text that encompasses both the scientific and spiritual…. A ‘must read’ and see, for therapists working with sound, systems scientists, and those wanting to understand the relationship of sound to spirituality.”
