Fractals in Music is an interesting crossover between disciplines. It shows how the mathematics of chaos theory and fractal geometry can be applied to understanding music in ways that may be more applicable to the technological age than current musical analysis is.
Advertised as "music theory for the new millennium," it discusses Fibonacci numbers, statistics, and Fourier analysis, as well as randomicity, correlation, and inner/outer form.
Although focusing primarily on classical music, the concepts are equally applicable to popular music or jazz.
Many non-musicians may find Fractals in Music interesting because of its tie to the well-known fractal images that have been popular for the past several years.About the Author:
Trained in music theory at Brigham Young University, the University of Illinois, and the University of Utah, the author has also written Fib and Phi in Music: The Golden Proportion in Musical Form.
