The author will describe the results of a research project involving the investigation of Joseph Schillinger's theories of rhythm and tonality as they relate to contemporary areas of algorithmic composition such as fractal music. In particular, the author will describe his work in the following areas:
a) the use of Schillinger's fundamental technique of interference
b) the relationship of Schillinger's notion of geometrical projection to techniques of fractal musical composition.
c) the application of fractal processes to Schillinger's emotional and semantic(connotational) schemes (i.e., the psychological dial).
