Geometrical methods

Introducing spatial elements into the performance of music is now common practice. After all, music happens not only in time, but also in space. Composers have been taking advantage of this fact for centuries, for instance in polychoral music during the Renaissance, when antiphonal effects were sought through appropriate positioning of the choirs.

Possible geometric approaches include:

Labyrinth

Penrose tiling

Tessellations

Three-dimensional music
