I'm no mathematician, so I'm stuck with the graphic representations.
Like all tools, modern technology has produced some wonderful moments in music and also some horrors.
Generally, I've got to say that all sounds, musics, noises since conception are bound to have influenced me.
Always think that in any area of the arts, you get maybe ten percent of people who are creative, original... and the rest are generally following on, copying.
Of course, there are many, many musicians whose music gives me pleasure, but until I make contact with them, musically or personally, I never assume that anything wonderful will happen.
