Towards one is a visual music piece that explores ways of combining moving visuals and music to create a sense of harmony between visuals and music. The concept of harmony became the thematic focus for the piece. Harmony, both as the synthesis of the visual and music elements and harmony also as the concept for the composition of the visuals and the music.
The concept of harmony drew inspiration from the system of mathematical musical ratios devised by Pythagoras that explained the most harmonious music intervals. These mathematical ratios were explored in the music, both in the sound design and in the music composition, where at times, simple intervals are used. They were also explored in the visual composition, for example, linking ideas about number with ideas about the harmonious underpinnings of the universe and the music of the spheres, and crafting harmonious visual forms that symbollically represent musical harmony. The organ pipes and the Tetractys section are visual forms created and worked with in the piece that directly represent in geometric form, the basic harmony laws of proportion. The piece aims to create a mathematical beauty in both music and image.
The piece was created in 1998 by Maura McDonnell of Sounding Visual
