technology with soul

If I hear one more person who comes up to me and complains about "computer-music has no soul" then I will go furious, you know.

’Cause of course - the computer is just a tool. And if there is no soul in computer-music then it’s because nobody put it there, and that’s not the computers role. It’s the role of the songwriter. He puts down his soul in the song if he wants to. A guitar will never write a song and a computer will never write a song. These are just tools.

And I think people were terrified in the beginning of the century when the telephone was invented. They were like "people will stop meeting each other and just talk in the phone all day" - but that’s ridiculous cause nothing can replace a meeting with another person.
