    That’s about affordable techology enabling people to make music. Very good.

    It’s basically about instruments.

    - Enabling things.

    - Devices.

    Compare it with the other historically developed musical instruments. Such as the clarinet ( an innovation in Mozart’s time). The Accordion . The electric guitar ( J. Hendrix as soon as it appeared ran away with all the first master pieces, just as Mozart did with the clarinet). Compare it with the synclavier & FZ.

    OK, right now, there’s new technology. And 80 percent of it is replaced by new technology every 10 years.

    The question is : how to make the best use of these new instruments? For the better.

    Stately, plump Buck Mulligan came from the stairhead, bearing a bowl of lather on which a mirror and a razor lay crossed. A yellow dressinggown, ungirdled, was sustained gently behind him by the mild morning air. He held the bowl aloft and intoned:
    -Even a Moog guitar can’t caus a person with no musical ability to create something worth listening to. Th right person can use nails, a plank, and bottle caps, make an mbira, and totally rock the fuck out.

    Now that is literature, man.

    And you’re right! I’d love to hear it played by someone who can invent something some truly new stuff with this amazing thing. Let’s hope the central creative force hands this thing over to a master before it becomes a gimmick for some nitwit.

    I’d suggest either Robert Fripp or Adrian Belew, both have a history of excessively using sustained notes in their guitar playing. So when it comes to sustain, these two qualify as “masters”

    As you all guess, i was quoting jeroen above, not myself.

    I was lucky enough to see one of these things played live at Moog’s Ethermusic Festival a couple of months ago. It really does sound amazing.
