I invite you to please read then more on the topic of acousmatic music.
FWIW, what exactly constitutes a pattern? If there is a rhythmic vibration
of an industrial piece of machinery, how is that different (from a
"definition" standpoint) from a rhythmic drumming? I think you are mixing up
pattern with cognition. But even if we consider cognition as a point of
contention, the machinery has a purpose and a role and as such its
manifestation is not meaningless at all.
