Visualizing and Sonifying the Iterations of z=z^2+c
This video looks like an interesting point of departure for sonifying the Mandelbrot fractal. I've never been happy with graphical sonifications that map pitch to the y axis of a rendering, and time to the x axis, but mapping these patterns to sound seems like a very promising way to get interesting patterns out of the iterations of the z=^2+c formula. And it would also be something that could render in realtime, instead of rendering millions of points in advance and then putting that data through a sonification function. Here's a blog post on orbit traps. Just started experimenting with Mandelbrot sonifications this week. I'll have some demo's up in another post.
