Make robot musician, not robot enemy. Here is how we imagined robot musicianship into being in 1984. Here’s more from Sonic State:
We often think about A.I. as being a driving force for musical ingenuity and advancement – in composition, synthesis and many other fields. Google’s Magenta wing is one prominent example in 2021 and this footage shows what was possible with the computing power of the early 1980s. Wabot-2 is a robot musician who could read a musical score by eye and perform the songs live on an electronic organ!
