We Are Matik in collaboration with Sonos for Re/code Code Conference 2014 created an immersive audio / visual experience exploring the transformation of Sonos’s HiFi sound into immersive “cymatics” patterns.

Cymatics, being the study of visible sound and vibration, was the medium through which We Are Matik explored this naturally occurring phenomena. By capturing these one of a kind occurrences and translating the visual results into an immersive experience, the tech-world influencer attendees of the conference got to experience how nature "VJs" dynamic patterns responding to the sonic qualities of different music tracks without direct human influence.

The installation consisted of 3 experiment stations, each featuring different Sonos speaker configurations resonating through various materials (microparticles, non-newtonian fluid and liquid). The results were captured by HD cameras in real-time and revealed via 47′x 12′ LED wall.
