Musicians speak of timbres, painters produce blue chords, architecture is perceived as frozen music, a picture has a rhythm. Harmonical orders, especially through proportions of the golden section and the Fibonacci numbers, can be found in all arts. And quite daring ones construct exact physical correspondences between colour spectrum and the musical partial tone spectrum (“overtones”) – in vain. And yet: this is always fascinating. Prof. Dr. Hartmut Fladt will talk about these fascinations in the exhibition “Sound on the 4th Floor. Compiled and arranged by Gerwald Rockenschaub” and he analyses different pieces of Music. Afterwards you will have enough time to realize your own ideas and artistic compositions with brushes and ink colors.
Hartmut Fladt is Professor of Music Theory at the Berlin University of the Arts. He has composed numerous stage plays such as operas, film music and children’s songs. In the radio show radioeins ‘Die Musikanalyse – Musik verstehen mit Prof. Dr. Hartmut Fladt’, he analyses a song every Monday and explains why it works the way it does.
