This paper is about the relationship of music and art which are components of the basic design applications over arts. For architectural education, to deal with art as a tool and the experience of benefiting from this tool in the design phase is considered as important. Therefore, the situations of music being used as a tool in solving design problems are exemplified in this study. Pallasma said "In the silence of a Gothic cathedral, we remember the last sound of a Gregorian melody". He emphasized how close the relationship between the sound theme of music and architecture is. Its relationship with sound and architecture in the upper scale and its relationship with music and architecture in the lower scale, similarities, common or differing sides have been emerged as two areas which have been questioned all throughout the history. These similarities, common or differing sides host up almost infinite number of concepts and features in themselves such as rhythm, repetition, body, composer, designer. In this paper, the relationship of music and architecture are discussed in terms of the said similarities, common features and differences. Sample area of this discussion is the basic design course in Karadeniz Technical University Department of Architecture, Trabzon, Turkey. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
