Music printer

In our childhood, we are likely to hold the dreams of being an artist, and we are interested in creating our own language. Different from painting in visual forms, music is a type of art in auditory forms. This music printer takes advantage of the Fractal Geometry, turning the melody into rhythm graphic and printing it out .Any person can create his own painting by making sounds with melody and rhythm using instruments like piano . Furthermore, it could be a way to find the reason why the musics made by great musicians are so moving.
