music, musical composition, musical behaviour, fractal processes
The author will discuss the direction and goals of his research into applications of fractal processes to automated musical composition. Factors relating to the choice of fractal methods, the application of geometric formalisms to music, and the aesthetic implications of self-similarity- will be discussed. Tape recorded examples of musical fractals will be played. The report will conclude with a summary of problems encountered and challenges presented to future research in this area.
