Last night there was brief discussion about the future of robots as music makers.
In 2108 will humans pay to watch robots play jazz? Most at last night’s event said no- we want eye balls, sweat, nerves, mistakes and a human presence. I read on the Wired music blog/Frankel’s blog that Robots are trying their (metal/plastic) hand to conducting.
The Robot on the blog page looks a bit menacing. If only they knew how hard it is for budding female conductors to get work!
