What if in the near future, they developed a robot which could play a guitar perfectly, and it could play any song that it was programmed to do. Also what if they had computers make music instead of humans?

I'll be dead by then, so I don't really care. And people will still make music, even if there were robots to do it...

What a ridiculous thread.

Umm, computers do make a lot of music, listen to most modern hip hop.
All this just ties in with the theory of Artificial Intelligence. Personally, I don't think a computer will ever know how to make music all on its own that appeals to humans. And if there was a robot who could play guit perfectly, I don't think anyone would really give a ****.

Machines can only make music they're programmed to make, by their Programer

Human beings

Computers and robots dont have emotions
And we will weave in and out of sanity unnoticed
Swirling in blissfully restless visions of all our bleary progress
Glowing in radiant madness

Um.. Cyborgs do. And emotion isn't really needed to make music.

They have.

The types of robots include: CD player, tape cassette player, mp3 player, computer music programs, radio.

...modes and scales are still useless.

There would still be people making music no matter what. It's art, there's no limit to how much you need of it or how creative you can get. If computers could make music, it wouldn't affect much, it'd just be an interesting trick. However, I doubt computers will have the capacity to be able to compose complete and creative classical masterpieces on their own any time soon.

cyborgs do not, humanoids do

emotion has everything to do with music and playing perfect isn't everything some songs are at their best when they have mistakes...

Not true. Both the Terminator and Robocop had emotions. Especially Robocop. That guy had some issues..

Luke Skywalker had emotions. Darth Vader had emotions, etc, etc.

And a humanoid isn't a type of robot!

They would need self-awareness to do that. And if they have self awareness...

See serialism and then see computer synths. It has been done before.
i*[∂/∂t]*Ψt = -[∇^2]/2*(Ψt) (unitless form)


Almost as convenient as Wikipedia, but infinitely more hipster, Dover.

There are already computers that compose music by themselves. The only thing required of a human is to enter in a specific algorithm and the computer will compose a piece all by itself. They've been doing it for the last 10 years at least.
Thus sayeth the Lord.

computers already make music, but they require human input. no matter how advanced the technology is, there will always be some human input.
