  1. So much progress in such a short time.
    To me music is an instinctive bridge between art and mathematics and it has another dimension, that of emotion, that is yet to synthesized.
    The reason so much has progressed in audio and music in a short timeframe is that it is that bridge which makes it subject to massive change in development of IT and computing but also subject to the variety of thinking associated with art and expression. What a combination !
