title Spatial Forms Generated by Music – The Case Study
source International Conference on Generative Art
summary This paper resulted from the first stage of an ongoing collaborative research between a multi-senses artist (R. T.) from New Zealand and an architect interested in generic architecture (M. D.) from Yugoslavia. The research examines potential relations between music and architecture and explores the ways music could be a source for generation of spatial forms, and vice versa, whether architecture might generate music. In the first stage of the research two different existing generic principles were combined. The graphical interpretation of the music served as a pattern for creating the spatial forms. In this experiment the Brahms’s Hungarian Dance No1 has been used as an initial generator. The music is transformed into the sequence of linear drawings. Every single drawing potentially defines a spatial composition, while each single line represents an axis of the future spatial form. Together with geometric definitions there are some ambient values, like color, transparency and many others, that can be determined by music. After an overview of results, paper concludes with perspectives for future research that will include time as an additional dimension towards generating dynamic spatial concepts based on music.
