Why Techonology Is Perfect For Chamber Music

“Although we might first think of rigidity and mechanization when we discuss technology, its real power comes from its very openness and flexibility. Technology gives us the ability to dream, to imagine new forms of music and performance, and to invent ideal relationships between composer and performer, performer and listener, composer and listener. In careful and creative hands, technology can expand the expressive power of virtuosi, build gorgeous hybrids of natural and artificial sounds, and allow amateurs to again fully participate, helping to re-establish a much healthier ‘creative ecology’ than now exists.”
