The pieces in this exhibition are derived from the geometries of mathematics, in particular from an abstract space called the zeta landscape which is at the heart of number theory. The central object of the zeta landscape is the harmonic series, the series of intervals from which musical pitches are derived. The works, both physical and sonic, represent the end of an aesthetic exploration into number theory from the perspective of a musician.
