Yes, you’re making sounds, which are perceived by our hearing sense. You can not literally see, touch, smell and taste your compositions. However, you have no problem imagining what something looks, feels, smells and tastes like.
Good storytellers do what they can to activate the listeners’ senses, so that they’ll get a more empathetic and immersive understanding of it. Whenever you’re talking with your friends about something, you don’t simply tell them what happened with three words; you do whatever you can to relate to them, and make them see the images you have in your head.
Many electronic musicians don’t even seem aware that they’re storytellers. They’re just busy expanding their vocabulary and grammar (mixing, synthesis, arrangement, etc.), without even thinking of stories to tell, and how to express them through sound. It’s the equivalent of a phony politician trying to win votes.
Your music isn’t for the ears, it’s for the mind.
