How much imperfection should we allow in "perfect" music?

Just a simple question. With all of the software capabilities, music has evolved to a precision that, in my opinion, could go to far. What are your thoughts on this?

About Me (Must include at least one paragraph of biographical information about you as a composer) - blank or minimal answers on this line will cause your request to be rejected. Include a link to your website if you have one.
I have been a gigging musician for the last 10 years. I don't want to glorify that because it hasn't always been easy. I would love to write music for film/television.

Yea, the blues is in my soul for sure. I taught myself harmonica, play piano, drums, and I sing. Sing primarily and piano as a secondary (right now, a year ago I would have said harp was my primary). I'm just starting to 'compose' really. I mean I've got my share of songs and progressions, but I am just now starting to think about parts and notation and whatnot. I've been much more about improvising than composing up till now. But yea if it grooves or has soul I'm a fan of it pretty much...funk, fusion, swing, big band, latin, r&b, etc. Right now John Medeski is my lord and personal savior, he's just like on whole other plane of existence ha. Let me know next time your in and I'll try and make it out to see you. Theres a bunch of bars in my neighborhood too, I could try and set you up something if you want... At the very least I could tell you my opinion of the better bars to play and do some grass-roots type promo for ya. Cheers!

Hey hey Utica! I like your stuff very tasteful on the melodic side, very tasteful. You gig in the city much? Your probably out to the quad cities a lot too. I used to go to school in D-port.

Hi Bill, just listened to ''Jack's Planet'' (now on ''Around Third Movement''). When you say you've gigged for the last 10 years, am I right in assuming that you're a drummer. The middle section of ''Jack's Planet'' is very detailed percussion-wise and really lifts the melody. It sounds as if you really know your way around a trap-set. Although it sounds very incidental (which I think is possibly your intention as you say you wish to be a media composer), I enjoyed it. It is certainly original, with some great poly rhythms. There wasn't really enough of ''Around Third Movement'' to get to grips with, but I look forward to hearing more of your work as time passes.

Thanks for the add Bill. I'll take a listen to your music when I have time. Feel free to listen to mine whenever you have a spare moment. I'd be happy to know what you think.

The final recording device is a 24-bit sound blaster, but all my synths and effects are patched with 1/4 inch cables through a Mackie mixer before being sent to the computer.

All the music and effects are produced by hardware synthesizers and digital effects units. The only 2 things I use the computer for are the sequencing / notation software and to record the final track for release. Both the Roland D-20 and the Roland VJ-1080 produce some nice analogue style sounds, and I used both synths in "Soames Hill".

Thanks Bill, I appreciate your kind comment. =)

Your music is nice and relaxing, kinda reminds me of Kitaro infused with a little Tangerine Dream or Animusic a bit.
