Greetings to all!

I am a musicologist from Moscow State Conservatory (Russia).
For my ongoing article, I am looking for information about significant examples of using
fractal algorithms in music of 1970-90-s. I am aware of several
important examples in the electronic field (Austin, Dodge...) but I
still have no an exhausting view, as well as I know almost nothing
about examples in non-electronic instrumental music (probably Ligeti
used fractals in some works?).

Can anybody help me with such an information (at least to mention
any sources of it - books, articles etc.)? Thank you in advance.

I also would be happy to be acquainted with serious specialists (both
musicologists and composers), who develop the area of new algorithmic
techniques in music, such as fractals, as well as the cross-influence
of "instrumental" and "electronic" languages in 1970-90 Western music.

Best regards,
Julia Dmitrioukova
