LONG AWAITED RELEASE: Extensively Revised, Expanded Edition of Hans Jenny's Original 2 Volume Cymatics Book


Cymatics, the study of wave phenomena, was pioneered by Swiss medical doctor and natural scientist, Hans Jenny (1904-1972). The core of this edition is Jenny’s two volumes originally published in 1967 and 1974, documenting over 14 years of his meticulous experiments using audible sound to excite powders, pastes, and liquids into life-like, flowing forms. The stunning array of over 360 images reflects a variety of patterns found throughout nature, art, and architecture. The photographs in this book consist entirely of experimental phenomena. There were no computer-generated images. 

undefinedIn this expanded edition, we have added a new foreword by NY Times best-selling author, Ted Gioia, who has written extensively about the impact of music on culture throughout history. An assortment of commentaries by leading researchers, artists, and scientists, articulate how Jenny’s body of work has profoundly influenced a wide range of disciplines over the past 22 years since our first edition was released.  

Dr. Jenny’s images are awe-inspiring because of their visual beauty and because they demonstrate a fundamental principle of creation: Resonance, the inherent responsiveness of matter to sound. 

He articulates a concrete methodology, shedding light upon those abstract revelations of the ancient Greek philosophers Pythagoras and Plato, and the great Copernican cosmologists, Giordano Bruno and Johannes Kepler. Employing the phenomenological approach of Goethe and Rudolf Steiner, his keen observations and penetrating insights offer a uniquely comprehensive understanding of our world.

This newly revised edition offers the opportunity to expand our understanding even further.

Pre-Order Today!

We are currently anticipating a press date of January 15th, 2024. The book is priced at $75 plus $15 shipping. If you'd like to pre-order Cymatics, please email Jeff Volk at International orders will require additional shipping, so check with us first.

The printer’s schedule was too tight to promise delivery before the holiday rush, so they have offered to drop-ship pre-orders hot off the press! Prepaid orders received between now and January 15 will be shipped right from the printers in Kansas City, via FedEx Ground or USPS Priority Mail, saving us all time and unnecessary carbon emissions! As an incentive for acting quickly, and to help you get into the Cymatic spirit, prepaid orders received before January 1st will entitle you to stream our most popular cymatic videos gratis for 30 days. There is no better way to initiate your study of these cymatic phenomena than to see them in motion. The narratives of the programs will provide additional depth of understanding that might otherwise take years to comprehend, even with the insightful suggestions provided in John Beaulieu’s, “A Primer for Non-scientists,” which is one of the newly revised forewords in this edition. For those of you collectors, I still have a few copies of some of these titles on DVD format which I can discount to cover most of your shipping cost.

One thing you won’t need a primer for is figuring out that a 352-page hardcover book, printed on premium 100# stock with a gloss-coated 100# dust jacket over 120pt. boards, is going to have some heft to it; (each copy weighs over 5 pounds)! So we’re offering this incentive as a way to compensate for the extra shipping expense with something that will truly help you to maximize your experience once the book finally arrives. This is a well-built book, designed to withstand many years of repeated reading and contemplating. A lot of care and craftsmanship have been employed in this project, and this edition has been printed in full color throughout. I trust you will recognize the value of your investment. 

Because of the enormous amount of work in revising this edition, our website at is undergoing major renovations. Feel free to contact us at or using the contact form linked from the homepage on the website. Details will be revised regularly at

All information is kept strictly confidential and we’ll only contact you about Cymatics events or related publications.



"Hans Jenny’s work was instrumental in my development of a theory of music therapy based on the principles of complexity science. This fifth edition of Cymatics, with its extensive revisions, is an important contribution to our deepening understanding of the healing power of music."
