"Once electronic instruments suggested an exciting, uncharted future. Now they represent a longing for a nostalgic past that did never exist"

"The future of 2017: a cheaper, smaller, unified version of yesterday. The D-50 was awesome and still is, but if re-releasing a D-50 and adding a generic step sequencer represents the vision of contemporary electronic music creation, something very essential got lost on the way. Once electronic instruments suggested an exciting, uncharted future. Now they represent a longing for a nostalgic past that did never exist" - Robert Henke, recently

paging people who working with electronic music-making hardware / software - is this remark, made by one who seems like he ought to know what he's talking about,  true in your experience?

  1. everyday i think ipad's and android's apps are THE devices of today accelerated and mass consumne times. Multipurposes device and portable for the nomade era... i like using hardware to make music but there is something political and spiritual about using apps for music making. anyhow app music making is something for middelage , old people at least until ipads get lower prices or android makes a better platform for music making
