          Abstract

          This paper discusses the creative process explored in the creation of the project A Hidden Order by artist Sama Mara and composer Lee Westwood. A Hidden Order is an audio-visual project merging the worlds of Traditional Islamic Art & Western Contemporary Composition through the universal language of mathematics. Comprised of an album, collection of artworks, a film suite interactive platform and live audio-visual performance. The project is based on a method discovered by the author that translates music into geometric artworks and vice versa, where pattern represents rhythms and colours relate to pitch. The use of this method enables unique approaches to the creation of music and art where one may create a geometric artwork entirely through the use of musical composition, or inversely create a musical piece through the visual design process or any combination of these two approaches together. This property allows for the practices, techniques and creative choices of each discipline to inspire, inform and shape the other.
