Cool video of sound waves pulsing in gallium and water

Peter Clark collaborated on this cool cymatics video for Thump, but the even cooler stuff is the camera test and the behind the scenes footage:

"Frequently, the initial research clips always come out pretty kick-ass, and this exercise was no different. Using water and shallow troughs, the team vibrated and rippled it with delightfully pornographic results. Coupled with stark lighting and sharp specular highlights created some deliciously high-contrast displacement studies."

More info on how the project developed. It's always cool to see the trial and error on an experiment like this!
