Fractal Music

If you don't know about fractals there's some cool videos on youtube you should watch, but basically they are "self similar" patterns found everywhere in nature from plants to cell phone chips. I learned about fractals a while back and wondered about their possible application in music. I had my own ideas, but here's how some scientists in the late 90's went about it. They used a method involving L-systems, which is explained on their website much better than I could break down for you. They produced many different midi tracks using methods such as this, which one might say are more interesting than enjoyable, but I think there's definitely artistic potential here and it depends on the artist using these methods and how they use them.

Religious Girls - Delora

I like their sample heavy, Animal Collective(ish) kind of sound. They are doing a free show today in Potrero Del Sol park in San Francisco today, along with some other good bands. Check out the line up.

Kevin Blechdom - Airplane

I like the use of little samples, tediously sutured together to create something completely alien, and elegantly succinct.
