Pyro Board: 2D Rubens' Tube!

Standing waves of fire!
Check out Audible:
Fysikshow: - I'm hosting Michio Kaku in Melbourne ONLY:

Rubens' Tube is an awesome demo and here we take it to the next level with a two-dimensional 'Pyro Board'. This shows unique standing wave patters of sound in the box.

The pressure variations due to the sound waves affect the flow rate of flammable gas from the holes in the Pyro Board and therefore affect the height and colour of flames. This is interesting for visualizing standing wave patterns and simply awesome to watch when put to music. Thank you to Sune Nielsen and everyone at Aarhus for sharing this demonstration with me! And thanks for having me at your conference.

Music by Kevin MacLeod, "Ice Flow"

Back when dubstep was made with a few VA synths and a couple of mogues.
I remember before Massive and Serum and all the other modern wavetable genius machines.
I also remember when sticking a tea candle on a speaker and watching it bounce was fun.
