Is the model "rhythm, melody and harmony" (as seen in classical music theory) sufficient enough to grasp the language of electronic music composition?
The model of rhythm, melody and harmony is the basis of classical music theoretical understanding. It is true that electronic music theory involves totally different concepts of sound synthesis and signal processing, and basic encoding models for signals: waveform (frequency, phase, amplitude). However, we can still recognize the applicability of classical music theory in electronic music composition.
Thus, the interest now is to know, solely from the scope of electronic music composition/writing, if the classical theory is sufficient. Otherwise, what are the extra concepts that emerge from the digital domain?
