PGA-1 is a two-part invention that sonifies the Fibonacci partition fractal. I built the piece for the Fibonacci ’98 conference, which was held at RIT and chaired by good friend and colleague Peter G. Anderson. Peter provided the data sequences (shown below) and asked, “Can you make music out of this?” I replied “Yes, I can!” and named the resulting piece in his honor.

Conference Paper – After giving a brief overview of algorithmic composition methods and dimensions, describes the Fibonacci partition fractal and how PGA-1 was created from it.
