I ran into Coppercat while browsing fractal flames. He is also a fractal artist, but an artist with a twist! He also makes music, and it is the perfect type of music to sit down and create fractals with. His style is electronica and trip-hop. Click on his name above to visit his site, and listen to his music! There are free mp3 downloads there for your enjoyment.
I'd also like to give thanks to Exper, because he has helped give me some new ideas. My creativity had dried out, and I hadn't been making fractals the past week. He has helped renew my source, so, thanks Exper! Be sure to check out his work, especially his recent swirls pieces!
Also, never underestimate the power of the linear transform. Creating a linear transform and then reflecting horizontally or vertically can make copies, and this helps to fill-in the frame. (But watch out when you then move those reflections - the image blurs! This may be good for some images, but not all!)

The first one is just so amazingly original...I've never seen anything quite like it...love it!

Thanks, BeadBabe! I like to hear that something is "original". Sometimes, in the realm of fractal art, some different artists' styles begin to look the same. Even though the possibilities are endless, thanks to the infinity of mathematics.

I agree, the first one is great.. I don't think I've ever seen anything quite like it. Its looks like photo after images of some kind of alien hummingbirds...

The first one is my favorite (aliem sense to me too) but I like the second one too.
Glad I provided you some new inspiration and creativity: this is the best we can do in this small-flat world.

Thanks, 'eliyahu! I enjoy hearing about what you see in these images. It lets me get a sample of your imagination at work! Alien hummingbirds? That's really something!

Exper - thanks again, so very much! You really have helped me, more than you know! It is a special gift for me to receive inspiration from you.

I have often wondered what fractal music would sound like: take the first note's place, iterate a frequency through a function and, depending on how fast it approaches infinity, assign it a musical value. Might be a beautiful adjunct to the visual equivalent.
I know, I know . . . I'm working on it!

Fractal music already has a presence on the web, and it is something I have thought about making in the past. I checked around online today, and found some very ethereal samples of fractal music. I just may have to try it myself, soon.
