  • Why bother learning the sax?

    This is just one of those freaky “the future is (almost but always never quite) here” kinds of things: a robot’s hands playing Coltrane’s “Giant Steps” on a sax. The whole thing.

    I think it’s worth a look. But I feel compelled to point out how ironic it is that we can make these fantastic machines that mimic an iconic human creative genius on a challenging “analog” instrument… (aren’t we clever monkeys!)… but we’re still stuck with a single, stationary camera.
