Music & Geometry


Music, speaking to the ears, geometry to the eyes. Both universal languages to humans, however often perceived independently from each other. Why? Music, and especially rhythm, can be visualized as polygons and many relationships can be found through this mere "visualization". Geometry has been the study of ideal objects in space. It's applications has been found from Astronomy to Particle Physics and beyond, especially in arts. In my opinion, its power comes from its static order but its fascinating beauty. Some works have looked for a connection between the ideal music styles and their corresponding geometries. While looking for an optimal structure might be far-fetched, I am looking forward to what geometry will reveal about our understanding of music.
