These ideas eventuated in Amorpha – Fugue in Two Colours (1912). Music’s temporality helps explain why visual artists regarded it as an ideal to which they might aspire. Music could achieve a continually changing quality of tone space, and painters longed to find a means for achieving analogous effects in their medium.

S. Bach’s 1725 Klavierbüchlein für Anna Magdalena Bach (Anna Magdalena Bach’s Clavier Book). This was just around the time that Richter first met Eggeling, and Richter passed Busoni’s recommendation on to Eggeling. Busoni’s recommendation struck a resonant chord in Eggeling, for he had already undertaken a systematic study of the elementary syntax of form relations, and had begun to consider the analogy between music and visual art.

He unpacked the significance of this principle of simultaneity in Bergsonian terms: The idea of the vital movement of the world and its movement is simultaneity.
