In this essay, the author notes that little attention has been focused on the practical aesthetic problems of electronic music composition while an impressive amount of print and verbiage have been devoted to technical areas that only support the higher level concerns of compositional aesthetics. In addressing this issue the author attempts to understand what appear to be highly intuitive processes on the part of the listener and particularly on the part of the composer. Through this approach he makes some observations and generates some questions that may be useful to listeners, composers and teachers of electronic music.
