Abstract:

In this article, the author reflects on the extent to which a computer is simply a tool, or more than a tool. He frames his discussion through a question; while the computer music composer grows as an engineer, is his/her aesthetic judgement complemented by interaction with technical modifications of the system or simply circumvented?
