Seeing sound come to life – being visualized – is sometimes, almost, more interesting than actually hearing it. Seeing and hearing is however an experience that speaks to more senses than you’d expect. This is something we created at the Code Conference with the interactive installation “Sonos CyFi Lab”.
The CyFi Lab is a visual experience exploring the transformation of Sonos’s HiFi sound into immersive “cymatic” patterns – cymatics being the process of visualizing sound through vibration. The visitors who explored the installation got to experience how a range of Sonos speaker configurations affected different mediums – micro particles, non-newtonian fluid and liquid – that was captured real-time and showcased on an LED wall that further amplified the experience.
