Baltimore guitar maker David J. Pace will present insights on the work of the eighteenth century musician and physicist Ernst Chiladni, with a demonstration of modal vibration patterns on a guitar soundboard plate. Pace will discuss the practical implications behind the demonstration in terms of how classical guitar soundboards are braced and sculpted.
Drawing from experience as a guitarist, audio engineer, and woodworker, David J. Pace hand-builds concert guitars in his Baltimore, Maryland workshop. His designs feature both traditional as well as composite double-top soundboards. Pace’s work was featured in the March-May 2011 issue of the French magazine Guitar Classique.
