Max Bill 

concrete design 
is a kind of creation that develops from its own means and laws without having to borrow or derive these from external natural phenomena. visual creation is therefore based on colour, form, space, light, and movement. although every sort of creative work is stimulated by inspiration it cannot be completed without clear and precise form-giving. through the act of form-giving the works in the process of being created acquire a concrete form, they are translated from their purely intellectual existence into facts, they become objects of visual and intellectual use. 
although the point here is not to compare the creation of form in music with form-giving in the fields of painting and sculpture, it is still possible to draw parallels that offer viewpoints from which concrete visual creation can be regarded. music has created forms like, for example, bach’s fugues, which will have an eternal validity. this musical form is not based on an imitation of nature, but is a purely intellectual treatment of the theme. with the use of fantasy it is handled according to certain plans and laws and is transformed and heightened, allowing the creation of a completed effect, which is peculiar to music, of a sequence of tones within a certain space and time. 
in the same way as clear and clean musical forms are pleasant for the listener and, due to the way they are constructed, offer those with a certain level of knowledge great delight, so pure, clear forms and colours should visually delight the viewers.
