Is there a place in computer music for not knowing? Is there a place in computer music for suspension, or transcendence of the ego? Is there a place in computer music for ecstatic expression? Is there a place in computer music for non-mediated creation? Is there a way in which creating computer music can be a spiritual practice? This short essay asks these questions in a non-linear manner, not so much as a means of proposing answers, but as a means of suggesting problems to be dealt with.
