From a certain perspective, the computer is the musical instrument and compositional tool par excellence. Finally, composers have the absolute control over the execution of their work they have dreamt about for centuries. Any imaginable sound can be created and controlled with the most minuscule details. Through Fourier's theories of harmonic analysis and synthesis, a sonic object can be designed with such detail in timbre that it would perfectly satisfy the imagination of Bacon and Varèse, leaving acoustic instrument makers in envy. Furthermore, due to the fast computing cycles of the central processing unit, musical events can be scheduled on the time scale of microseconds. Perfect timing is guaranteed, whether the tempo is 1000 beats per minute or 1 beat per week.
