Thanks for posting both links. I listened to your "masterpiece", which I found mildly interesting (especially those LOUD promo interruptions), though it was lacking in the chaotic activity one usually associates with fractals. In that way, it reminded me somewhat of the music posted here and then withdrawn by Albrecht. After taking a glance at the fractal music generator you linked to, I understand why the similarity is there. Both the linked program and the one developed by Albrecht use a generated fractal image (256 colors in the case of Albrecht I believe) to map the sounds to. In that respect, I doubt that a distinction could be made when listening to a piece generated using just about any photo - or otherwise generated image file - compared to one using a fractal image.

I believe in Albrecht's case, he adds a fractal-formula-based algorithm to pick the sample points for the music. But the result is still only as chaotic as the underlying image.

So here is my key contention. Even though the process used in producing the image may have indeed been chaotic, the image produced is not chaotic. Interesting? Maybe, but because each pixel represents the result produced by a chaotic process, not the process itself, any music based on an image is also non-chaotic.   Of course, this is all only my opinion, and I realize that it may cause waves, but what the hey! Fire away!
