I convert my own musical composition, Quinta, into a three-dimensional form using a 3-axis coordinate system in a CAD environment. The 'x' represents the Western 12 note semitone series, 'y' is time in seconds, and 'z' is the frequency, or octave range. A color is designated to each of the 9 instruments. Note shapes emerge and are extruded along the path their musical notation dictates, resulting in an improbable, organic architectural phantasm.
