Who knows what the next few years will bring in terms of technology? What kind of music, for example, would a device harnessing brainwaves and converting them into sound, make?


Indeed!

I think it was Arthur C. Clarke who said "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic".

We can't even imagine the "magical" sounds of things that don't exist yet!

Though I do wonder if "recorded music" (or even "songs") will be as important as they were in the last century . . . everything seems to be going towards "more user control". Instead of "just listening" to music, maybe people will be able to "play music" the way they would "play a video game" today . . . ("Guitar Hero" anyone?! Just imagine if this game didn't just recycle old Aerosmith songs, if it actually let you create new music in a super-easy, intuitive way?)
