Fractal Garden is a collaborative musical project of John Aldrich and Jay Loeper, with occasional special guests. Fractal Garden was born on iCompositions.com, a wonderful site for musicians all over the world to hook up and write music together. John and Jay, to this date, have never met each other. They only know each other through emails, phone calls and their music. Dedicated to their own genres of music (electronica for John, rock for Jay), both artists favored strong melodies in their songs, and a common bond was instantly formed. Their first collaboration, the title song of their first CD, Between Strangers, was a #1 hit on iCompositions.com when it was released 1/1/06. So, pretty much because they could, John and Jay set out during 2006 to write and complete songs for the first album. Fractal Garden is a fusion, an alloy, of John's and Jay's styles. For their first album, they opted to focus mostly on instrumental music. Each artist writes songs that are true to his preferred genre, but the resultant sound is pure Fractal Garden!
