Well, for one thing, it has a pure tone. This makes it fairly easy to
combine it with more complex elements/sounds. It can also be easily
synthesized, allowing for a blending of synthesized and acoustic
versions. It sits very nicely between loud and soft dynamics, again
facilitating the mixing in of electronics. It features the human
breath, something that is often lacking in electronic music, making it
a good complement to bleeps and zaps. Easy to carry, futuristic-looking
(especially in shiny metal).
