      I think it makes perfect sense. Music is a coded language.

      I've heard this before.  I don't know if I completely buy it, because I
      suspect that it depends on the musicians involved.

      Still, I think part of its truth has to do with that creating music and
      creating code are actually not all that dissimilar.
