This is so surprising from a person who is on a linux mailing list: this
is exactly the difference between "just open the exe file on windows"
(mechanically do something that seems to 'get the job done' without
trying to understand how it works) and try downloading the source and
understanding how things work i.e. learnng.
Knowing the theory means helping to learn and understand what phenomena
(physical, psychophysical, social, cultural) are behind the your 'music
and emotion' thing - otherwise you are mystifying and turning music into
black magic ;)

Well of course, put this finger on this fret and another finger on this
fret :P (sorry couldn't resist).
