Cymatic sound images.

Cymatic sound images.

The sound of BMW silencers can generate unique imagery by means of so called cymatics. Cymatics is generally understood to be the visualisation of sounds and waves. The term was coined in the twentieth century by the researcher Hans Jenny, who derived it from the Greek word “kyma”, for “wave”.

The most famous examples of this method are the so called Chladni patterns. A bow is used to play a sound on the edge of a sheet that is secured at its centre and strewn with sand. The vibrations in the sheet excite the sand that comes to rest along the stationary node lines. The result is a sound pattern. These patterns therefore visualise the sounds made by vibrations. Or sounds as only Akrapovič silencers can generate.

From catalytic converter to carbon heat shield – Akrapovič silencers are power performance with style.
