Caption: Music and technology has been advancing and merging recently to the point where robots can perform music live now.
“The robot that can play the violin” is essentially a machine that has been built and programmed to play all, if not most, of the notes on the violin. Being a music major with a love for the sciences, being in the know of the advancements of music is a must. I admire this project a lot as music is a way of expression from many mediums. But also, this project inspires me to work harder to achieve my musical goals. What I mean by this is that nowadays, anyone can just hit the correct notes in any order or time, but the ability to play with meaning and humanity is still something that a robot cannot do and is hard to achieve.
