Music and Architecture

By: Faezeh Ensafi
In what ways do different art branches affect the architecture? How are connections to the different categories of art made, and how do they affect the present  world in which we live? Different art branches meet in many fields. Words & sentences of art are similar as regards harmonic elements, unity & rhythm .We focus in this study on those fields which make the architecture meets.
The music arts, and how each art is affecting the others? There has been a tremendous development in architectural concepts. In the past, we had obtained a complete symphony through the architectural works. Presently, we invent flexible, dynamic architectural models by integrating music wave frequencies using computer simulation programs or by de-constructing forms into free separate pixels.
Explaining the mutual relation between music & its philosophical effect on the  architectural ideas. Analyzing created architectural products which are designed by the musical harmony inside the computer simulation program. Finding if these new design methods will meet the society‘s desire & acceptance in the future, or not?
No doubt, that the branches of arts are unified in one connected chain. Each branch is affected by the others, thus the branches of music and architecture.  Similarly, in both fields, we shall find an amazing symmetry between their elements. In the past, the architectural work was considered as a huge existence containing many signs and meanings. If we stress upon the architectural forms and their outlines of plans and elevations, we will find by chance that these forms represent a beautiful portrait of art, which provides the same feelings when we listen to an enjoyable music symphony. 
Musical graphic notation is a written representation of music that uses none or only few of the elements of traditional staff notation. Musical graphics, has its own aesthetic value as a visual art and does not have to be defined through its translatability into music. Like visual scores—that is, images instead of graphics—musical graphics is composed not with the intent of producing concrete music; it may, however, be translated into music. Now the question is; How can we translate a piece of music to graphics or how can we derive a concept of an architecture out of the piece of aural art?
