Practising electronics

I think Kurt Ralske puts it very well in “The Pianist: A Note on Digital Technique”

“For the classical pianist, the tedium of endless hours of practicing scales takes on an aura of nobility; it’s a virtuous, character-building activity. Instead of practicing scales, the digital artist learns software and hardware, learns programming languages, learns the techniques of creating digital models of sound, image, information, and intelligence.”

I wonder when music technologists will be employed in orchestras as musicians.
