Fractal Music

Common Mistakes -
All Iteration

Graphical Iteration on the Logistic Function

A common error of logic is the assumption that because fractal patterns often emerge from iterative processes, iteration always must result in some sort of fractal structure.

To be sure, iterative algorithms can generate interesting musical patterns and textures. However, the burden of demonstrating the existences of some specific fractal characteristic falls to those making the claim.
