+ - Human and Machine: Music of the Next Century.->

Submitted by
The Living Fractal
The Living Fractal writes "Music. It started with gutteral chants surrounding bonfires on the wild plains of Africa. Then maybe the chants were joined by makeshift drums. Eventually instruments were created. They became ever more complex and capable of harnessing the range of human hearing. More and more people became involved. There were orchestras requiring many people. Then something happened. Computers were created, and electronic music was born. But it wasn't the same, the computer couldn't harness the truly amazing fidelity of a real instrument. But computers have gotten exponentially better. And now they give a single person the power to create an entire orchestra. Witness the future, and ask yourself, where does it go from here?"
