The Interval Cubes are a series of abstract semaphores representing each of the 12 intervals in the chromatic scale, corresponding to the black and white keys on a keyboard. Composing music is in certain respects, a "stacking" or assembly of sound elements in a temporal context. The visual abstraction of these elements add a spatial or even sculptural aspect to music. Young children may develop creativity by this combinatorial approach, generating variety with a finite set of possibilities.
