In this chapter, the author, who is a composer and music educator on is own right, discusses the act of composing music with the aid of a computer. The author proposes the notion that the computer should not be considered as a musical instrument or a machine for automatic generation of music, but rather as a tool to aid the realization of the composer’s abstract musical ideas into musical forms.
