Hi,


An interesting electronic or digital phenomenon in its own right. At least it is what it is and isn't claiming to be a 'digital' version, a simulacrum of something that it really isn't and can't be. The distressing aspect of the lady's explanations is that she is already positing this as the 'future' of music which renders our diatonic system 'old fashioned'. Such short sighted attitudes are unfortunate, and show a fundamentally irrational bias with no appreciation of what she is blithely consigning to history's rubbish heap. We can't have 'this' here and 'that' there, but we must say that 'this' is the new actuality and 'that' is the 'old fashioned' one now devoid of legitimacy. What preposterous arrogance and insinuation! What astounding ignorance posing as an authoritative voice! Too, there isn't much about these gadgets that is different from the ondes martinot which, curiously, excited Messiaen. They remain gadgets which are devoid of the beauty and colour of tone produced by real musical instruments.
