how I make art: nobody has asked recently. my methodology is in the work & talking of work/werk/Kraftwerk, it's more fun to compute than paint, isn't it? sometimes. I jest about painters even though LJ is one. I can paint. I choose not to. anyone can paint, badly. I compute images, frequently, mostly - and then >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Raymond Scott loved technology & put his knowledge to commercial use, literally, for commercials, as can be heard on the Manhattan Research collection (highly recommended). sounds play an important role in my life, which is not the same as just saying "I love music" - I eat, breath sleep music & suffer terribly from ear worms - currently, Sylvester's You Make Me Feel which, as you know, is enhanced greatly by Patrick Cowley's love of technology - so -
- so, aside from Kraftwerk's uber-sharp, precise/melodic/classical technological art, computer/synthesizer love can aid powerfully emotive neo-gospel (holy church of Disco) vocals - and, in the same way, computer art can, if so desired, be combined with the human fingerprint/personality/stain, although it need not be the literal finger, but the eyeball impression/vision of the maker which leaves it's mark - a deliberate infusion of 'messy humanity', or art made by robots, I don't mind either way.
