CymaVibe - Star Songs 

It’s an astonishing and poetic fact that many stars have “songs” that radiate out into the Cosmos. The sonic signatures of stars are created by atomic processes, causing the star to ring like a very low-pitched bell, and these rhythmic sounds cause the light of the star to fluctuate. The starlight effectively carries the star song to Earth where it is demodulated by astronomers and converted back into sound.

This technique helps astronomers learn more about the processes in the atomic furnace of stars. In collaboration with the Smithsonian Institute and several Universities, we imaged the song of the sun and of several stars. The results are beautiful harmonic patterns that we think will appeal to all interested in the beauty of Nature. Consider adding one of our star song images to your art collection today.


Star: Sun

The atomic processes within the atomic furnace of stars create sounds as a result of the high-energy collisions between atomic particles. These sounds cause the starlight to vary minutely, creating tiny modulations that can be detected by sensitive instrumentation, then demodulated, thereby recreating the original sounds in the laboratory. Analysis of the star sounds can help asteroseismologists gain a better understanding of the atomic processes with a given star. The CymaScope team have made visible the sonic signatures of several stars, including our home star, the sun. Sound file provided by Dr. Guenter Houdek and Dr. Douglas Gough, University of Vienna, Austria.  First shown at a Smithsonian Institute exhibition in 2012, which was successful in inspiring adults and children to the wonders of visible sound.


Star: HR 3831 

Star HR3831 is in the constellation of Vela, was first discovered by Professor Donald Kurtz of the University of Central Lancashire, UK. It is a new class of star with a powerful magnetic field and a pulsation every 11.7 minutes. Prepared by Dr. Zoltan Kollath. First shown on BBC Television and features interesting four-fold geometry that reflects the oscillation within the star.


Star: Chi-Hydrae

Chi-Hydrae is a white subgiant star in the constellation of Hydra and is 141 light years away. Estimated to be 1.3 billion years old, Chi-Hydrae has an interesting sonic signature. Prepared by Dr. Conny Aerts and team, University of Leuven, Belgium, in association with the European Southern Observatory. Displays 3/6-fold geometry. First shown at a Smithsonian Institute exhibition in 2012.


Star: RR-Lyrae

RR-Lyrae is a variable star in the constellation of Lyra. A prototype of a class of stars known as ‘RR-Lyrae Variables’ due to their pulsations. Located near the border with the neighboring constellation of Cygnus, RR-Lyrae is the brightest star in its class and has been extensively studied by astronomers. RR- Lyrae variables serve as important ‘standard candles’ that are used to measure astronomical distances. Discovered by the Scottish astronomer William Fleming at Harvard Observatory in 1901. Sound provided by Dr. Elisabeth Guggenberger, University of Vienna, Austria. First shown at a Smithsonian Institute exhibition in 2012.
