Modern technology of music

A nice collection of musical/technical instruments. While I don’t know if I’d buy any of these music makers for myself, it’s odd to think what role technology has had in the proliferation of music. Musical instruments can be found as far back as the archaeological record goes, and it’s only been recently that technology has played any sort of role in music, first with the cylinder phonograph. But now, people listen to music primarily through radio or ipods, people play electric guitars, keyboards, and synthesizers, and everything is recorded using digital technologies. So I supposed it only makes sense that more and more we will see music created using the medium of electronics.
