We may not be aware of the fact that much of today’s music is created with the help of electronics. In his book, Cseres focuses on influential artists who do not use technology to facilitate their task, they rather consider it a creative challenge. With philosophical insight he pinpoints the relation between today’s music and intermedia and science, between the possibilities and constraints of technology, and most of all between human imagination and creativity in the post-modern era. In Hudební věda (Vol. XLII, No. 2), Michal Rataj wrote that Cseres’s book is a "synthetical work that breaks new ground with remarkable ambition without parallel in the Czecho-Slovak context."
