This site, designed primarily for students, has a fractal
music section (as well as massive galleries of fractals,
a fully interactive course on fractals, a fully
functional fractal generation program, downloads, etc.)
An academic paper covering some of the research that has
been done on relations between fractals and music. A few
computer programs which can be used to generate fractal music -
The Well-Tempered Fractal and
MusiNum - are discussed, and also possible practical uses for software
which can be used to hear patterns in fractals.
Dedicated to the sharing of tools and information for exploring and
advancing the musical use of fractals. This site contains
numerous examples of fractal music, downloadable software
you can use to compose original fractal music, and some
information and activities designed to help you better
A useful source of information and links. Fractal music
enthusiasts are encouraged to publish their works here.
Links to physics, mathematics, algorithms and artificial
intelligence, and further ideas concerning these pages
are also welcomed.
Fractal-Vibes is an exploration
into audio-visual experiences with fractals and chaos theory.
See and hear what can be done with fractals
in Music and Art; find out more about fractals;
learn about the software used to create fractal art and music;
Follow the links to other fascinating sites;
submit your random parameters and hear what they "sound like"
as fractal / algorithmic music; hear about an upcoming CD
featuring 10 fractal composers from around the world.
MusiNum is a free program which turns numbers into generative
fractal music. Everybody can create unique royalty free
music within minutes. Interesting for mathematicians and
other people who like to play. Fractal concepts,
self-similarity and a new kind of symmetry are audible now!
A gallery of fractal images by produced by Phil Jackson,
using software he wrote himself, together with a good
selection of fractal music generated using MusiNum, Art
Song and David Singer's FMusic.
Check out the Make-a-Midi section. Based on parameters you
enter, Phil will create a short midi file for you and
post it in the Make-A-Midi Gallery within a
few days, along with your name and date received.
Also worth a visit is
The Music of Phil Jackson
on the MidiWorld site.
A fascinating site maintained by Yo Kubota, who provides a
freeware Mandelbrot Music Program, plus two suites of
fractal music, including some with various ethnic
influences - Gamelan, Indian, Arabian, etc. Wonderful
background information as well.
A composer's tool for the derivation of musical motifs,
phrases and rhythms from the beauty and symmetry of
fractals, chaotic attractors and other mathematical
functions. Windows shareware by Robert Greenhouse.
