Herbrand's Rondell @ c/o pop Convention
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?
English: In past decades new instruments and tools have helped create and shape new music genres. The electric guitar, the first Moog synthesizer, the introduction of samplers and their wider popularity when they became more affordable, the famous little Roland boxes that have shaped nearly all forms of dance music since the late 80s and other examples. What are the tools today and tomorrow that will radically inspire new forms of music?
