The concept of composition is an important creative foundation, not only in music. In the visual arts, composition is associated with assembly and structure, perspective and symmetry – terms that are just as relevant to music with different weightings. Musical composition means the “musical work fixed [and multiplied] in notes”, more abstractly and more generally defined as “an artistic creation, compilation made according to certain criteria.” The guided tour examines composition as artistic principle through looking at works from abstract and realistic painting, as well as video art.
