I would have to say no to that one. A computer could be used to modify other instruments' sounds, but it does not have its' own unique sound, and you cant really compose music for a computer to play.

You may want to be a little more specific with your terminology then...
Compose = create, arrange, etc. in the sense Janszoon was talking about.
Sort of like "composing a letter". And while I haven't been to a letter concert in a while....

I'm not really sure what going to a concert has to do with whether or not one can compose music for a computer to play.

I've been composing music on computers since i was about 14, and countless artists have composed music on computers over the years as far back as 1951 believe it or not, so yes it is very much possible. A computer doesn't strictly have it's own unique sound but an infinite number of sounds can be created with a computer by using different types of software.

Good post man, midi seems to account for 90% of computer made music. At least it used to.

So... what other instruments do you use? Why didn't you post more about those before making proclamations of being the new authority around here?
