Neue Instrumente und technische Errungenschaften haben in den letzten Jahrzehnten zur Entstehung neuer Musikgenres beigetragen. Die elektrische Gitarre, der erste Moog-Synthesizer, die Einführung von Samplern und ihre größere Popularität, als sie erschwinglicher wurden, die berühmten kleinen Roland-Boxen, die seit den späten 80er Jahren fast alle Formen der Tanzmusik geprägt haben, und andere Beispiele. Was sind die Instrumente von heute und morgen? Welches Equipment wird in Zukunft völlig neue Musikformen entstehen lassen?

What are the tools today and tomorrow that will radically inspire new forms of music?
