    Disagree. To reach the upper echelons of either profession these days, I think both science and art are required.

    A good modern equivalent would be to somehow compromise DAW software installation and/or session files, and have the person being tested sort things out and get the session up and running under fire.

    So we throw out roughly 40 years of recorded music and the artform of recording learned therein and fire up an M-Box and show 'em how it's done?

    In your photography class, your instructor going through the exercise of analyzing chosen published images was a case of fertilizing his/her students. In that sense, I think a person can teach art. For a lot of students, art also begins as emulation before those who can strike out in their own directions.

    I think all of their employees have to have a similar mantra tattooed on their body somewhere...

    Well, since I'll have a hand in it, that's why I was asking. To get other people's opinions. I don't have to ask to get my own opinion.

    You mean hand them a corrupted pref file? Oooh, that would be wicked. Or delete half of the audio files from the drive? Naw, that would be TOO real world.

    Yes sir. I meant that from those various opinions whatever you deem valuable and teachable (and what may or may not fit) to put into the recommendation from that.
