As a sounddesigner and musician I always experience music as something very tangible. Almost in the same degree as experiencing a landscape. But sound always remains something ungraspable. I got fascinated by the Chladni patterns. They visualise resonance patterns of sound in a miraculous way. Salt or a similar substance is poured on a thin metal plate that is resonating on a clear tone. Every tonefrequency has it’s own specific symetrical organic drawing that appears. The device used is called a Chladni plate. During my research I built several. I made the process of transformation within the drawing on the Chladni plate threedimensional inspired by CT scan technology. A piece of sound is now spatially recorded.

Every soundbit will have it’s own characteristic scultpture. What will your favourite melody
look like? The results of this study consists of a 3d print of a soundbit of approx. 400-600hz and a handmade model of tulip wood of approx. 550-600hz.
