Objects that we think of as strong or solid in our everyday experience appear almost liquid while experiencing acoustic deformation. The above clip, taken from an episode of Discovery Channel’s Time Warp, shows how a cymbal being hit by a drumstick bends like a piece of soft rubber in response to the initial impact. The disturbance then travels to the other side of the cymbal, setting up the natural vibrations that give the cymbal its distinctive sound.
