As for your other point - back in the day there wasn’t as much gear around to make sounds with so, true, one had to work harder but it was a limited pool of sounds even within avant-garde compositions due to the limited access to equipment and equipment limitations. There were always those wonderful little breakthroughs though.
Today I believe I have access to 4000 patches in Omnisphere alone so I don’t have to lose my right brain creative rampage due to the left brain shutting it down because of a technical issue. The poor sod who spliced together 458 minuscule slivers of tape to get 30 seconds of maybe music had it much worse in terms of trying to keep the creative juices going.
But I think RB was thinking of those who put a few loops together and call it music. There has always been boring music but I bet there is at least 1 person who really likes that 2 loop "tune".
The trouble with computers, software synths etc, is that in the eyes of the laymen, the comment always goes something like..."you did that on a computer yeah? easy innit"
It’s as if, you haven’t spent days getting that sound, or movie edit, so there’s no skill or value attached to it.
