Topic 1 Music and geometrictransformation

This lesson is dedicated to analyzing the applications of some isometries in music. The aim is to see how some compositional techniques find close analogies with geometric transformations. 

The term “isometric” means “that respects distances”. Any isometry can be considered as a rigid movement on the plane of a figure, which can be moved, mirrored or rotated. 

Translation, axial symmetry, central symmetry and rotation are isometric transformations.
