• Photographing Soundwaves
  • Posted 18 months ago by staff · Art & Design · 7991 Views
  • In an attempt to build a bridge between the acoustical and visual words, photographer Fabian Oefner has created a colourful series entitled "Dancing Colours". By placing pigment dyed salt on a thin foil of plastic, which is wrapped above a speaker, Oefner managed to make the salt "dance" in strange formations based on the different sounds being played. Speaking about the series, Oefner said:

    "I attached a microphone to the speaker, which is connected to the flash system. As soon as the speaker emits a sound, the microphone picks it up and sends a signal to the flashes to trigger them. I took the images in a completely darkened room, so I can just leave the shutter open for a few seconds, only the event illuminated by the triggered flash is captured."

    • Great work. At first it doesn't look like much but when you take the timing into account it's quite tricky to capture something like this.
