->[-''An anecdote has been told about the dialogue between Emperor Joseph and Mozart after the first performance of his ''Abduction from from the Seraglio'': The emperor complimented the composer for the heavenly music but complained that it had too many notes. Mozart's reply was, of course, that not one note was dispensable. We agree that we cannot arbitrarily substract a single note from the master's composition. Yet, could we eliminate half of the notes and still consider the music to be by Mozart?''-]

>[-''The question whether music has a fractal geometry has been debated. We have presented an analysis and given a positive answer. If this is indeed the case, the implication is self-similarity and scale-indendency. In other words, a musical composition could be represented by a music score of a different scale, using a half, a quarter, or twice as many notes as written by the composer; Emperor Joseph could have an ''Abduction'', at least a music score of the ''Abduction'', that contains half as many notes as it is written by Mozart.''-]
