"Computers are great at producing sounds - anything we can write an algorithm for, we can hear. They don't get tired, they have a lot of processing power, and they're easily networked.

"People, on the other hand, are adaptable. They're social. The notions of expressiveness and intention more readily applicable to people.

"You pull all these elements together, and then you see where the intersection is."
