Music and Technology: Creativity

April 24, 2008

This is another video from TED.com that is at once imaginative, technological, artistic, and moving. The use of technology to increase access to expression and creativity is always welcome and the technology presented here is no exception. MIT Media Lab, who created Guitar Wizard by the way, shows some of its new developments and showcases a musical piece written and performed by a man with cerebral palsy. Watching this, I had tears in my my eyes and joy in my heart- and from the images of the audience at the presentation, I wasn’t alone in my response. Enjoy.
