I agree. I wasn't saying I held his view as well. I like a lot of the
"academic" computer musicians... Roads, Dodge, etc.

I do see what he is saying though. At least with academic computer
music, 95% of the composers are mathematicians, electrical engineers,
computer scientists, or something similar. Sometimes (sometimes), the
music reflects their backgrounds a little too much for some (some)
people.
