    My wife found this, thought I would love it and would want to share it here. She was right!

    Very interesting. It is worth a little more investigation.

    Fascinating video presentation but...

    The narrator suffers from the Elmer Fudd Syndrome

    which is the inability to correctly pronounce the English letter "R"!

    AAAARRRRGGGGHHH!

    This is absolutely fascinating. Sounds and harmonics, tones, super and subtones, they have been common knowledge for a very long time. Even the ancient Greeks could mathematically calculate all the harmonics of a natural tone. Later, most instruments were built according to the richness of the tone production (read to the amount of produced harmonics on each tone). But none of these instrument builders had ever seen a visual representation of what they were trying to achieve (except a stone thrown in a puddle, making waving circles). This refers maybe coincidentally to magnetism patterns with iron filings. It proves that tone production is a symmetric activity with balanced ratios both on the side of the core (the pure, natural tone and the under and upper harmonics) spread in a circular form (omnidirectional).

    Most interesting and worth further examination.

    And just a thought. Could it be a means of 'listening' to music for (trained) deaf people? These patterns are at least aesthetic.

    --?! Seriously, Larry? He IS pronouncing the English as in British R, since he's obviously English. In case you haven't watched any PBS recently - the R is soft there, not hard like the American R.

    --But even if the guy did have a speech impediment - how in the world is that germane to what he was showing us, and how would it be anything more than incredibly rude to mock him for it?
