dBlech is an audiovisual installation, an object that creates, manipulates and reflects sound and light. A mirror-polished metal-plate is excited with transducers driven by audio signal to create sound and vibration. Through the plate, the signal becomes audible, with its material properties directly affecting the sound characteristics. At the same time, the surface is deformed, visualizing the transverse waves in the mirror. This artwork connects multiple layers of our perception. Sound and light are inextricably linked since both arise from one and the same source. It blends into its environment, takes the space and starts to change the vibration of its surroundings until everything resonates in unison.
