I agree. I'm just new in this area (recently grad in music tech). I never really though about it.
I always took it as computer music, "my" computer music whatever form I perceived it to be.
I dont expect anyone to agree with me.
It was just a thought, and I am fascinated with any type of contradictions.
Unfortuantely, a lot of things are categorized in the world, so it came to my mind. :P
But I agree that it can be harmful. I just learned that :) but maybe someone will say no
with a good proof....
So maybe I'll learn otherwise again.....etc.....

I agree 100%. That's why I've avoided this conversation. ;-)
