Elements of harmony

Elements of harmony

Piece description from the artist

Elements of harmony is a Visual play on musical harmonic structure. There is a fine structure in the notes that combine to make a chord, the basic unit of harmony. Suspension, resolution, and contrapuntal movement connect the chords locally while harmonic progression and the overall key and phrasing of a piece connect and help listeners make sense of the music. Here the small geometries are like chord structures. They relate and loosely connect to one another, sometimes overlapping like suspensions, evolving in patterns of harmonic progression as one moves through the painting. the little geometric shapes tie the larger ares together, as chords and local harmonic structures progress and unite the themes and phrases in a piece of music.
