Mandel-Bach Journey: A Marriage of Musical and Visual Fractals
(Proceedings pages 475–478)
More than two centuries separate the writing of The Art of
Fugue, by Johann Sebastian Bach, and the printing of the first
graphical representation of the Mandelbrot set. Here we examine
Bach’s Contrapunctus IX from a fractal perspective and listen as
it accompanies a zoom into the Mandelbrot set.
