A Hidden Order
What would pattern sound like if interpreted as a rhythm or melody?
How would music look if transposed into the visual realm?
A Hidden Order presents a new artistic venture revealing the bonds between Art & Music, bringing to light an unforeseen unity that merges the worlds of Traditional Islamic Art & Western Contemporary Composition.
The result of a long-term collaboration between composer Lee Westwood & geometer Sama Mara has culminated in this unique cross-disciplinary exhibition, taking on the forms of a collection of artworks, audio-visual performance, video installation and an interactive platform.
The implementation of a pioneering new theory discovered by Sama Mara, allowing for pattern and music to inform each other directly, has enabled a unique creative process whereby geometric space is explored through musical composition. The fruits of this undertaking are a resultant suite of 10 new works for mixed ensemble, and their corresponding geometric artworks.
This document consists of a complete catalogue of our print and audio collection, along with information about the artists, their working process, and the theory behind this innovative and unparalleled artistic venture.
