The music in this one is entirely made from fractals. I used the fractal music program Fmusic to make the original midi. I later converted the first minute of it to mp3 (I thought the original midi was too long).

I love the water and fire theme. :D :D

very unique sound you got here, care to elaborate on that fractal idea?

some really sweet ideas, I like the general sounds (I like the pipe percussion and the panned cymbals the most, and the way the horns slowly move in the background) and mixing. although it does sound a tad cluttered.

so a pretty cool mix of sounds in here dude, but its unstable. I'm interested in hearing what you're process was in making this tho :)

Thank you very much for your thoughts, I really apreciate it.

As for elaborating on the fractal idea, a fractal is a mathematical pattern which is generally irregular, branches out into many layers of details, and repeats itself after a while (what mathematicians call "self-similar"). For example, if you zoom in to certain parts of a fractal a few times, you will eventually find a pattern like the original fractal pattern.

As for the mix of sounds, it does sound a bit cluttered. This tune was made back when I didn't know much about the program I used, Fmusic. I've been practicing though.

Basically, in Fmusic, you choose the instruments, and the set of numbers that determine the rhythm and notes that will be incorporated into the MIDI file.
One can also determine percussion, which may work from regular (non-fractal) pattern. But you can also make percussion a part of the fractal rhythm, too. Here, I used both types.

Thank you for asking about the process I used in making this.
