Tools over technique

The great benefit of computer sequencers is that they remove the issue of skill, and replace it with the issue of judgement.

—Brian Eno


The extent to which technique is a defensive moat is the extent to which human expression is being limited by available tools. Collapse the distance between imagination and implementation by building tools.


Every time a tool bridges a defensive moat, there will be arguments about what counts as "real art".



You'll need access to tools, and you may want to consider bootstrapping.
