 You seem to be neglecting composers based in
semiotics who in addtition to technical and musical
knowldege consider what the sound produced signifies
and how it is interpreted by the listener politically,
psychologically etc.
 Furthermore, your equations do not include those
composers who are aware of computer based EA music's
place in cultural theory as post-colonial. The first
computer music having been created in the southern
colony of Melbourne and exported back to the cold
(post-)industrial north where it has been nurtured as
though it were the north's own creation. See:
