This paper will show how the artistic universes of the Portuguese composer Cândido Lima and that of the painter Maria Helena Vieira da Silva contribute to create an extraordinary imagistic universe and a singular object of art. It will also show how the works of Maria Helena Vieira da Silva, in the way she paints and sees the world, offer the composer a different way of working and approaching art. The architectural scheme of Casa de Serralves in Oporto is also very important. The space changes the artistic approach of both artists and the way the artistic project of Polígonos em Som e Azul is seen and assimilated.

Keywords: Music, painting, interaction, Cândido Lima, Maria Helena Vieira da Silva
