About the project

'Major Scale' is a series of infinite data-driven artworks, representing the constructs of musical harmony.

The intention of this series is to exemplify music's recursive formulas while exploring the separation of concerns between style and structure

Created by designer and musician, Dan Sankey, 'Major Scale' is a happy by-product from an on-going written series on the Musicality of Design Systems, a study on how the conventions of music can offer rich inspiration when designing systems for scale.

The series renders the chords, scales and progressions that are prevalent throughout music by plotting their constituent notes on the chromatic wheel. The coloured variants, map the root notes of each chord to the colour wheel.

With a set of pre-composed shapes a near-infinite number of compositions can be created - for any medium, any size with any style.
