Music Is What Numbers Feel Like

If you love futuristic musical madness, then these bizarre charts and mathematically-transformed pieces of sheet music from artist Marco Fusinato will delight you. Think of them as the abstract underpinnings for a movie like Darren Aronofsky's Pi.

Fusinato brings together avant garde music and art in his work, creating imagery that looks like the results of a mad scientist's musings on how sound functions. In this series of drawings, called Mass Black Implosion, he's transformed scores for avant garde works into suggestions for what he calls "free noise," by changing the order of the notes and suggesting new relationships between them. Basically he's suggested a way to make something abstract even more abstract. In the process, he's created charts that are gorgeously strange.
