Watch this bloke demonstrate the use of sound to create order out of chaos
If there’s one saying we bloody love it’s this classic: ‘Music can soothe even the savage beast.’ Deadset, that one’s a f**ken pearler, and we all know that a good bloody tune is a great way to chill the f**k out after a hard day at work. Still, have you ever really thought about it on a deeper level? Because the bloke in this video has, and he’s even got a mad demonstration to show us exactly how sound can create order out of chaos…
All right, the bloke sharing this video online is Ted Gioia. He’s a jazz musician and author, and he’s shared the video to give people a bit of a demonstration of some of his theories. The actual bloke in the video is Kenichi Kanazawa, a Japanese artist, and he should probably get the credit.
Other than that, his trick’s pretty f**ken swish. He’s got what we think is salt, and he’s sprinkling it all over a big metal table. (It could be a gong or some other instrument, but f**k it, you can see it as well as we can, and it looks like a table, right?)
Anyway, the talented bugger pulls out a teaspoon, and a couple of f**ken toffee apples (seeing as we’re mislabelling everything in this one), and he makes some sweet, sweet music by causing vibrations on the table.
The effect, basically, is like that old gum commercial with the speakers. The salt moves and makes awesome shapes as a result of the different vibrations. It’s pretty cool stuff.
We’re not a hundred per cent sure how it works, but the fact the vibrations are moving the salt seems to sum it all up.
Still, it’s pretty cool, no matter how you see it. Give the video a squiz and let us know what you reckon.
Final thought: Yeah, nah, we like this one. Seriously, check out some of f**ken Kenichi’s other clips too. He even does this shit with colours. It’s mad as f**k!
