QUINTA
3 min 45 sec, 2011

3D animation (low res version) with original music composed and recorded by the artist.



I convert my own musical composition, Quinta, into a three-dimensional form using a 3-axis coordinate system in a CAD environment.  'X' represents the 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 along the path dictated by their musical notation, resulting in an improbable, organic architectural phantasm.
