Mathematical Symmetry and Reflection in Music


The role of symmetry in geometry is universally known. Therefore, geometry plays an important role in understanding the planet we live in. Symmetry, in terms of invariance and equivalence in the mathematical concept, enables the physical sciences to be exactly defined as well as the reality of matter. Art itself often defines symmetry in terms of beauty, balance and harmony. Symmetry is an idea in which man is trying to understand or create as wide or narrow as we can define the order, beauty and perfection of nature throughout the ages. In music, symmetry first appears to us in proportions and physical terms. The theory of symmetry defines and characterizes the structure of the physical world together with its existing features in nature. Thus, it can be shown how symmetry is handled by looking at the characteristics of the curtains, intervals, sequences and melodies used in the music works.
