Joseph Schillinger

Joseph Schillinger (1895–1943) was born in Kharkov, Russia, and immigrated to America where he became a citizen in 1936. He was a pianist, composer, music theorist, mathematician, and art professor at Columbia University. Mathematics and geometry shaped all of his teachings. Cubist three dimensional geometric displays with colorful visuals enabled his students to grasp music in a whole new way. He showed them what music looked like in geometric forms.
