Visual renderings of animal sounds

Just failing to make my personal criterion of fine art, these images are still too beautiful not to share them in my main blog. Computer engineer Mark Fischer takes the sound waves from animals and transforms them into a brilliant array of colors and patterns via a specialized computer program. The results are mesmerizing. I selected the one based on the sounds of a minke whale, but the linked article gives many more, all well worth looking at.
