This paper presents the first development steps of a hybrid computational aeroacoustics (CAA) method for the prediction of trailing edge (TE) noise, based on a physics-driven prediction of the surface pressure on an airfoil. Starting frommean flowdata for a given configuration, the dominant pressure modes over a foil are modeled with an incompressible formulation of the resolvent method. As a conceptual test of its suitability to predict surface pressures, the framework is used to model the unsteady surface pressure fluctuations generated by instability waves on an infinite flat plate. While a canonical test case, the flat plate is a good starting point for the investigation of airfoil TE no..
