Dear all Architectural genius...

In response to recent discussions and suggestions on music & Architecture, i was hoping that i may be able to get some views on a similar project which i am involved in...

I'm studying Transport design at Coventry University, in my 4th year of an Mdes.
With my major project hanging over my head i am currently imersed in the world of muic, the outcome being a vehicle inspired by music...

The transition of music into form is the basic topic, and so far i have outlined afew pontential sub-topics to investigate:-

- THEORY OF MUSIC, use in ancient times, Golden section etc.
- SOUND OF PAINTING, artists influenced by music
- GRAPHIC REPRESENTATION OF MOVEMENT, Paul Klee-Bauhaus, modern graphics
- COMMUNICATION, visual media player programme, CD covers
- SCULPTURE, &other art forms..?
- FILM, fantazia
- MOVEMENT & DANCE, dancer interpretations of diff' musical genres

...If anybody should have any interest, thoughts, reccomendations/advice or experience in this area, i would much appreciate some input. Any links, references, or the opportunity to view a thesis on the topic would be fantastic.
