    The robot made an appearance in 2005, but I haven't found any further performances.
    Maybe I have been in Europe too long: is seven of nine THAT desirable?

    I don't think it is to far fetched to think we might have robots provide more accurate testing of trumpets.
    I've hear of certain polymers that can be made to crosslink with the application of electrical current.
    This has implications towards the fabrication of artificial lips,and sphincter
    musclescontroled by computer.

    .


    For producing real music,Nothing will ever be contrived that can compete with the human brain or more importantly ,the heart.

    As for this hollywood actress we are objectifying,it has been proven statisticly
    proven men look at face first then body.
    so heres my vote:

    face 6 just ok (look at those buggy eyes)

    body 9 hot but not scorching

    I saw a thing on tv a while back that was about researching atrraction. They claimed that the number one thing that causes a man to be attracted to a woman is the hip to waist ratio. They set up a "speed dating" event (a bunch of people who only spend a couple minutes with each potential date) and they said that the only thing they could use to predict which women would be considered "attractive" was the "hourglass" figure cause by the waist being narrower than the hips. Who knows if their research was accurate, but that's what they said...

    Anyway, Seven of Nine certainly gets an A for hip/waist ratio!

    The Daleks, if they played trumpet, would prefer the wide open models.

    Hmmm, we could start calling certain types of lead players "Daleks." BTW, Romana was my Sci-Fi dream babe!

    this is retarded, because computers/robots can't perform as well as humans. They are told how to play, but can they truely show emotions? display the music so that the audience can feel the music and relate to it? I feel that this isn't going to end well. Im not willing to give up one of the few things i truely enjoy to a stupid robot.......

    If told exactly how to play, a robot or a computer can reproduce the musicianship of the programmer. They can be useful tools for research, for finding out how we play and what we like, but the time spent in pasting and programming together the perfect performance may exceed the time and effort expended using "real" musicians.

    As for samples, check these guys out:

    Vienna Symphonic Library

    Have fun, and don't give up the trumpet just yet!
