just chiming in to say my favorite composers are those who actually use computers to do what prior devices cant, rather than just using them as glorified/more-convenient tape-loops/tape-decks or mixers. Icarus, Autechre, Dirty Danger (programming fruityloops is programming too).
if theyre just using the computer to turn on and off Loops in LIVE and slather on McFX, or to get that pristine 32/192 sound which is so much more boring than a grimy old 4-track, forget it - give me some Sun Ra or something Rudy recorded in Hackensack...
