Misc. Comments

One night I was playing with guitar samples and wrote this tuneful, Neo-classical based piece, not really paying attention or even caring if it was playable (most is, a bit of it stretches the hands too much). This is a perplexing issue that is starting to surface with digital samples and more and more sophisticated music software. I have always maintained that in the not too distant future computerized music (that chooses to imitate acoustic instruments) will be indistinguishable from live performers. Not there yet, but its getting closer for some instruments than others (but 10-20 years from now, I am confident we will be there for most everything but maybe violin and voice). So is a virtual instrument a valid instrument in and of itself independent from the instrument it is intended to imitate? That's the thought provoking element to this piece. It really wasn't written for classical guitar. It was written for the Notion Guitar.
