Visual Harmony is a system developed by Dave Snowdon that uses harmonic maths techniques developed by London-based composer (and director of the Planet Tree music festival), Lawrence Ball.

Our aim is to make Visual Harmony into a tool capable of generating beautiful and engaging audio-visual experiences. Visual Harmony will be able to react to music by generating accompanying visuals, and also generate music itself. It can be run autonomously or played like a musical instrument - a light synthesizer

Visual Harmony can generate subtle patterns of movement and colour. It was publicly demonstrated for the first time on 19th November 2000 to accompany music performed by the group Piano Circus at the closing concert of the fourth Planet Tree music festival.

In these pages you will be able to learn more about Visual Harmony. We will add more material as the project progresses.
