How should we react to the growth of technology? Throughout history, every civilization has used available materials and tools to make music. These available materials and tools are developed according to the technological achievements of the time. Music is always in line with contemporaneous technological advancements, and knowledge plays a major role in broadening the boundaries of what we call music. 


Yet, at the same time, some also have thought that technology destroys the delicacy of music. Mobile devices, ringing cell phones and texting create significant disruptions to music. While we are split in our opinions as to whether technology has negatively impacted music, we should all recognize that it has enriched music by making possible new perceptions of what music can be.
