So here it happens, the siren of Architecture called, and I heeded.
Nay, I relinquished.
Architecture, that capricious muse, finally seeps in my art chamber- yet how could I have kept it at bay?
Architecture is, indeed, frozen music.
If this building was music, what song/genre would it be?
Sir Barry says that some architects of the Baroque era literally applied to their designs harmonic ratios learned from musical intervals and harmonic relations between notes.
I always thought Baroque was the music closest to the act of creating, to perfect mathematical equations, the music of the cosmos. Fractals’ music. Baroque and its clavichords is what I am listening to right now, as I finish a 3D digital model. The model dances and takes form. Digital sculpture.
You must pardon if I wax poetic. I just finished ‘Death in Venice’ and my heart is full of poetry tonight.
