Dear Julia,

1)do you subscr*be to the "algo-comp" list? there are plenty
of postings referred to fractals use, algorithmic composition,
etc. etc.

2)one of the most respected introductory sources I would
advise you is the "Computer Music Tutorial" by Curtis Roads
(published by the MIT Press)

3)there are some excellent articles in Spanish languague
referred to fractals and algorithmic composition techniques.
One of them by the Spaniard Miro-Charbonnier appeared in
the BOA newsletter of the AMEE in 1996. There is a very
good overview to fractals in the book "Informatica y
Electronica Musical" by Adolfo Nuñez (Spain).

Give my best to Andrei Smirnov if you see him,

Martin Fumarola
