The Science Behind Audiowave Art

We use sound all the time but have you ever wondered what sound really is? Sound is a type of energy made by vibrations. When any object vibrates, it causes movement in the air molecules. These molecules collide with other molecules close to them, which makes them vibrate too, which in turn causes them to collide into more air molecules. These vibrations created by the movement of energy are called sound waves. Imagine a stone thrown into a still body of water. The rings of waves expand indefinitely. The same is true with sound.

Once the sound wave is made it requires a specific wavelength and frequency to be heard by the human ear. When these sound waves strike the eardrum, it vibrates and transfers those vibrations through a set of three very small bones, until they become nerve impulses that our brain then recognises as sound. So while this may seem to happen very quickly, sound waves have to travel a long way before you actually ever hear anything!

Voice is the sound produced by humans to communicate with each other. Just as each one of us has a unique fingerprint, which differentiates us from others, similarly our voice has a unique pattern that identifies and sets us apart. By using the advanced technology of voice printing Audiowave Art blends the science behind sound and the beauty of Art to create a visual form from your unique voiceprint.

You can tell someone you love them, ask them to marry you or preserve your child’s first words in a way where it is seen every day, forever. The possibilities are endless!
