SACRED GEOMETRY IN MUSIC COMPOSITION
The harmony of sacred geometric proportions has been inspiring many artists to interpret its beauty in many different directions. In this interactive workshop Rui Gato will be presenting an ongoing research which aims at translating geometrical shapes and numbers into music. In fact we can think of the proportions of geometric shapes as expression of numbers in space, and the harmonies of music as expression of numbers in time. Both are forms of vibration, and both working together can generate high forms of synesthesia. The talk will be based on the geoMusic system devised by Rui Gato, through a visual programming language (TouchDesigner), connected with Ableton Live.
After studying a bit of Architecture, Rui Gato chose the path of Music and Sound Design in 1998. Since then, he has been developing a multidisciplinary work of sonic laboratory, having the modulation of the sonic matter and the exploration of its limits as the main conceptual basis. His professional and artistic activities center on realtime musical composition and human / machine interfaces. Since 2007 started also exploring the motion design, interactivity and synthetic image generation areas. He has been studying Sacred Geometry since 2016, and developing a research on Geometrical Music.
