The water surface is stirred by individual sound using the novel patented technology of converting durable sound into a single image. All the audio waves regenerate into water waves and are photographed. Amazing photo revealing the invisible beauty and harmony of sound is made into artwork and sent to client along with the certificate of its originality. The picture contains a QR code that enables to listen to the original visualized sound at anytime.
