Architecture and algorithms in the composition of analogies.
This paper presents an interdisciplinary approach to the composition of a piece for orchestra entitled Analogies. Composition involved the creation of musical analogies to structural characteristics found in architecture. More specifically, four movements were composed based on various structural facets of the Eiffel Tower. The paper discusses compositional issues that arose during the inception of the project and then reveals how the architectural analogies were created in each of the four movements. There are also brief remarks regarding an algorithmic composition program that was used throughout the composition process.
