RE: [microsound] again asking for a paper ...

Hi Samuel,

you can find interesting thoughts 
related to algorithmic/computer stuff
on the issue of Contemporary Music Review
dedicated to
Horacio Vaggione, published 2005.

there is an interesting article by Vaggione
on the Computer Music Journal, (2001).
"Some ontological Remarks about Music
Composition Processes" 
(a lot of insights concerning aesthetics, 
even critical to such formalized processes)

if you allow me to say, that it would be better
to write something, that doesn't necessarily
defend computer/algorithmic music, but explores
issues on the subject. 

hope this helps,
