As a child he was a gifted keyboard player and although a career in music seemed his most likely route he chose instead to become a physician. After completing his doctorate he taught science at the Rudolph Steiner school in Zurich for four years, before setting up his own medical practice in the Swiss village of Dornach. Jenny was an advocate of the idea that Cymatics described a sound-matrix at work in nature, an invisible driving force that could create everything from the wave-like shape of a mountain range to the stripes on a zebra or the petals on a flower "The more one studies these things, the more one realizes that sound is the creative principle. It must be regarded as primordial. No single phenomenal category can be claimed as the aboriginal principle.

Cymatics demonstrates it very vividly, see and explore The generic term for this field of science was retitled Cymatics by Hans Jenny , a Swiss medical doctor and a pioneer in this field. Scraping with the chisel over and over again, I noticed that it was only when the plate emitted this hissing noise that any marks were left upon it; when the scraping was not accompanied by this sibilant note there was not the least trace of such marks.

In this book, Chladni describes the patterns seen by placing sand on metal plates which are made to vibrate by stroking the edge of the plate with a bow. Throughout the s, up until his death in , Swiss medical doctor and Anthroposophist, Hans Jenny took a methodological and exhaustive approach to documenting Cymatic phenomena.

He pioneered the use of laboratory grown piezoelectric crystals, which were quite costly at that time. Hooking them up to amplifiers and frequency generators, the crystals functioned as transducers, converting the frequencies into vibrations that were strong enough to set the steel plates into resonance.

He made the resultant nodal fields visible by spreading a fine powder lycopodium spores of a club moss, as well as many other methods and materials. He documented much of his work in still photos which were compiled into two volumes published in and , and republished in as a single hardcover edition. Also available there are videos which incorporate and expound on the original footage of Dr.

Following please see what sound does to matter…and again, imagine what sound can do to your body on a cellular level


Hans Jenny (cymatics)

It is sound science, and amazingly cool! IMPLEMENT practical approaches to creating greater harmony in life by becoming more aware of those unconscious vibrations that we constantly enliven throughout our day. This wide-ranging program weaves startling scientific artistry with poetry and music, to demonstrate pragmatic spiritual principles. It is accessible to anyone with a willingness to entertain the inconceivable: that you can be all you imagine yourself to be, and nothing more!

History[ edit ] On July 8, , Robert Hooke was able to see the nodal patterns associated with the modes of vibration of glass plates. Hooke ran a bow along the edge of a glass plate covered with flour, and saw the nodal patterns emerge. The powder moves due to the vibration and accumulates progressively in points of the surface corresponding to the sound vibration. The points form a pattern of lines, known as "nodal lines of the vibration mode". The normal modes of vibration, and the pattern of nodal lines associated with each of these, are completely determined, for a surface with homogeneous mechanical characteristics, from the geometric shape of the surface and by the way in which the surface is constrained. This provided an important contribution to the understanding of acoustic phenomena and the functioning of musical instruments. The figures thus obtained with the aid of a violin bow that rubbed perpendicularly along the edge of smooth plates covered with fine sand are still designated by the name of "Chladni figures".
