Electronic Visualisation and the Arts
11 – 13 July 2017
This paper serves to give an overview of the audiovisual project A Hidden Order by artist Sama Mara and composer Lee Westwood. The project explores the relationship between music and art, and is founded upon a method discovered by Mara that enables the translation of music into geometric art and vice versa. Within this method pattern relates to rhythm in a one to one relationship, and colour relates to pitch (Mara 2016). The basic principle of this method is founded upon the observation that number is the basis of harmony for both music and art, so it is through mathematics and geometry that these fields may be brought together.
