NOTE: 

Inspired by violin builders that use Chladni patterns to check the quality of their instrument.

The Chladni Device is a machine that is able to make sound visible. 

A brass membrane is resonating on pure tones and creates marvelous patterns when sand is poured upon it. The installation was to be seen at the Spitdummies festival by Eindhoven based organisation Axes Jazzpower.
