Ccrma people are not engineers. Engineers look at the tools and knowledge that they have, and from there think about what cool/beneficial things they can do. They dont say “lets do xyz!” without reasoning about what kinds of things are necessary to get there. Last quarter everybody’s project ideas were more fantastic than mine but mine ended up being better despite being done in like 2 days…well, i should also mention that im the only person who made enjoyable music. So much eye rolling!!!
