Author:John Chuang
Description: During his life, Mozart wrote the measures and instructions for a musical composition dice game that cuts and pastes pre-written measures of music together to create a minuet. Compose a minuet online in one of three ways: CGI generates all random numbers, you pick the "random" numbers, or make a fractal with Chris Seidel's Fractal Generator (The Mandelbrot Collaboration). Links to other Mozartian sites and listening to MIDI files.
