In order to emphasize the links between science and art, we analyze the Renaissance painting of the 15th century known under the name of The Creation of the World and the Expulsion from Paradise. This composition displays not only the artistic qualities, but also a symbolic meaning of the image following the internal geometric structure used by the Italian master when painting this masterpiece. The invisible structure is developed around three circles emphasizing the round halos of the Creator and of the Angel, as well as around the concentric circular universe depicted in the left half of the composition. A precise numerical ratio obtained through the expansion of these three circles reveals both the significance of all the elements distinguished in this wonderful piece of art. © 2015 Elsevier Ltd.

Generative symmetry is a fundamental issue of the musical language. This paper investigates the polysemy of the palindrome-modal systems, aiming to evidence their matrical-structural and generative-syntactic potential values. The foundation of our argument consists in some representative works by composers Anatol Vieru and Mircea Chiriac, whose conceptual strategies focus on interdeterminism and the fusion of sonorous elements within the macrotemporal binome: syntagmatic-paradigmatic.

By briefly analysing the motifs, we noticed the importance of the process of variation and development undergone by all the sound entities by means of traditional devices consisting of motif expansion or narrowing, segmentation, sequence accumulation underlying the main plot elements and the particularities of the actual evolution of the characters' dramatic art.

The present study is an attempt to demonstrate and stress upon the complexity characterizing the way in which Anatol Vieru - a representative composer for the Romanian musical vanguard - through the organization of the initial available sound material resources on principles of horizontal and/or vertical symmetry (typical to non-gravitational harmony), manages to create in Symphony no. 5 "Peste varfuri", a cycle of 48 Variations reunited under the form of an original chaconne - a true model of the genre, starting from a modal-harmonic algorithm with polychordal structure - with double functionality: that of an unique generative source of the sound matter and also, of a perpetuum obsessively extended throughout the entire variational cycle.

This article presents some of the laws of sound matter in temporal organization, which I have discovered in European musical works of the early 20th century - the modern period. The research is novel through a demonstration of new principles of formal structuring, determined by the features of sound systems: tonal, modal, atonal. Alongside tonal functionality - a generally accepted law, now extended to post-romantic works, we propose intervallic functionality and the functionality of colour (of the complex sound).
