For the jazz listener, operating outside the canon can be a daunting experience. Once you dig 4/4 time, syncopation, swing, cool jazz and hard bop, it is difficult to appreciate other genres. Pop is formulaic and overproduced, and classical, too rigid. Electronics, fahgettaboudit. Machines cannot replace the human capability for improvisation. True, but what if there exists a synthesis of the human and the machine? Then, yes, the electroacoustic can be as enlightening to the jazz listener as the tradition.
