There are probably people doing that. You've not heard of them because
they aren't afforded the profile and media attention given to those
who emphasise form over content.

I started using MAX some seven or eight years ago for performing
improvised live scores for dance projects. Nobody in the media took
much attention because I never told anyone how I was working. These
days, I emphasise the technology side of things because it gets
people's attention, even though it's basically irrelevant to the
artistic content.

So, I have just prostrated myself to the media machine in the lowest
way possible: registered my limited company with a name which has
".com" on the end.
