So much music has been inspired by technology!

Where to start? Sewing machines, railroad trains, hurdy-gurdies, music boxes...the list goes on and on. A young person today finds a piece of music boring. Could it be that it's boring on purpose? What if it's imitating a quintessentially boring gizmo--like a spinning wheel? Isn't it amazing how quickly such devices become ancient history!

Can you tell the difference between a player imitating a machine and a player who has become one?
