PAWHH. Dude, your prescience flabbergasts me! No, actually, I haven't done that much with electronics and software. Mostly music theory, and lots of listening and extra-curricular reading.
I kinda had an idea that drawing waveforms would at best be tricky getting usable timbres....but, thinking about it, I suppose you could....with a lot of resolution (in software, and in yourself), and time. Seems much more of an 'artistic' effort.
Pierre Boulez and his successors may have the ability to do that, though.
Consider it high comedy....sincere tragedy....whatever...don't take it personally.
