The Visualization of Music

Music to Drawing Types - Limit to Circular Area, Left to Right Reading, Mixed Organization, Unbounded, With Elevation, With Symbols and Glyphs, With Inserted Images, With Inserted Textures and Surfaces, Organization of Rhythm and Time in Two Dimensions, Painting Music – Synchromism, Kandinsky, Others

Pitch Spaces – Assignment of pitch to points in geometric space, adjacent chords with shared vertices, representation and relationships of pitch, frequency and harmonic overtones to spatial location in hearing, pitch as distance from center in concentric circle, circles of intervals, using multiple circles to represent pitch relationships in polyphonic texture or multiple timbres, combined and adjacent polygons and lines of pitches to create layouts with reflecting points and lines based on harmony of the pitches, transformations of shapes, using squares, using lines and curves, using points only, using 3D objects

Color-Harmony, Dissonance and Consonance - Intervallic and Triadic – setting interval relationships to color relationships, assignments of third notes in triads, using the color wheel with triads, creating color sonorities with extended chords, subjective associations, individual pitch-color subjective associations

Timbre Symbols, Glyphs, and Shapes – use only a monophonic piece or choose most important notes as a centered and changing visual symbol or image, one image per important note, measure, or beat, using melody only if suitable as an impression of changing sound, shapes based on overtones – flutes as circles, horns as stellated points, floral types, line contours as straight, curved or wavy, and jagged or angular, consider Lissajous figures and Chladni Plates

Texture Layouts, Mosaic or Textile Designs – Basic layouts as shape-relationships to fill area - each instrument, timbre, or melody line is a shape or geometric element such as a line or circle – pitch is associated with changing locations, loudness by overall area occupied by the shape, harmony as color-relationships of pitches, polyphonic texture as an overall visual pattern – using mosaics, tiles, weavings, tapestries, kaleidoscopes – pitches and harmony create layout based on intervals in polyphony with pitches mirrored to form symmetries, and intervals determining distances of reflecting lines

Layout of Forms – Use phrase beginnings and ends to create connecting points for visual music key frames, sections have overall thematic designs or types.

Dynamics and Light/Dark Balance – Space occupied changes – the envelope may be expressed by a point in a polygon moving to change its shape or overall area in a note, loudness expressed as overall size of objects, overall intensity of color
