What does it feel like to experience music or visual art where events are governed by the golden ratio and Fibonacci numbers? What does the golden section of a piece feel like? What does a golden section pitch ratio sound like? What kind of music could a Fibonacci sequence create when applied to pitch? If your interested in these questions, you've come to the right place.
I'm not a big fan of MP3s. I have included them here because I want to leave the choice to the listener, assuming not everybody will want to wait to hear something of higher quality. I highly recommend downloading the WAV files, burning them to CD and listening to them on a hi-fi stereo. I also am willing to send CDs out, provided that the person requesting is willing to pay the postage. For the files that are available in Csound format and those already familiar with this format, I would recommend downloading the Csound files. Csound is available free to the public, and related sites are listed in my links.

Those who have Finale should download these files.
These reproductions are worth taking a look at if you're interested in how a certain piece looks on the page.
Unfortunately, due to glitches in Csound, the files for Golden Strings II and III are not available. These files were reconstructed in several parts.
