This is a follow up to my original resonance video. Since the original I’ve always dreamed of doing this experiment with UV sand. I finally got the opportunity and I wasn’t disappointed. Certain tones resonate with the metal plate which causes waves to form. These waves crash into each other at certain points which cause the waves to cancel themselves out. It’s at these points that the sand forms.

Most of the transitions that you see between the patterns are natural, with no editing. There are only 2 or 3 that I edited together because I removed a few frequencies in between in the editing process.

I chose to add music instead of hearing the tones. The tones are mostly extremely high pitched and they vary slightly between each other.
