I think it's really ignorant when people criticise electronic artists for not playing instruments for a number of reasons:

-All electronic artists DO know how to play piano, atleast to a basic level. This is required for pitching synth sounds. All successful artists have knowlegde of pitch, keys, tempo etc that any classical musician would. For example James Blake trained as a classical musician and is now a successful chill/dubstep artist. Also most artists do indeed play synths on stage e.g Dirtyphonics, Glitch Mob.

-Electronic music is infinitely more complex than you will find on a generic piece of rock music or pop music.

-Playing a musical instrument is not something to boast about. I play violin and piano to advanced level, and guitar on the side. Playing an instrument is essentially nothing more than muscle memory- seeing a note on a page and applying it to the instrument at your fingertips (of course, with some emotion). Composing requires more skill, and separates the men from the boys.

-Don't underestimate the difficulty involved in music composition. Just listen closely to a piece of his music and you'll realise how many layers and different synths went into producing that song. Hundreds. The number of synths involved in his pieces are on an orchestral scale

Ultimately, who cares if he's not playing a live instrument? The whole point of electronic music is that it can't be accomplished accurately by playable instruments and needs computer software.

A macbook isn't an instrument, because they aren't musicians, they're COMPOSERS. that takes a lot of musical knowledge and talent. electronic music is usually very complex, and it annoys me that there's so many people hating on these artists.  they are easily just as talented, if not MORE talented, than at least half of all the popular "musicians" out there, like Nicki Minaj and Justin Bieber. If you don't like the music, don't listen to it and leave the artists alone.
