I hear that in the future, music will be made by machines.

Cool. I love your style. The shine where the bow and the strings touch is a great touch too. It just makes it look so much more glorious:D

Just as long as it's people who make the machines... That means that our brains are still responsible for the music. Beautiful, and thanks for sharing!

What if machines make the machines? What if the machines weren't built to make music?

Then we have ourselves a serious philosohical issue which, in all likelyhood, would be debated until question and machines were obsolete. Or, there would be enough bad tunes on the airwaves to rival the years when the nineties' boy bands were the "in thing." (I'm terribly sorry if I killed the intent of your questions. Please forgive. =()

Charming suit/design/fashion. :) And also.... You knew that the most violin's curves(on the top) curl upwards, right?

Lovely how it's shining where the string and bow meets. Gahhh! I used to think I was going to be the world's first musical robot inventor until I heard of Japan's robots. :1

Some music is made by machines right now. They just pump out up-beat crap to disguise the fact that in the back of people's minds, depression is growing. Or something equally undesirable...

Aaanyway, this is a great piece of art. The tiny details on the clothing are amazing, the colours are wonderful. It is simple in one way, and complicated in another. I enjoyed looking at your other stuff as well, it's so different from the usual. Excellent work.

Will we? I'm not so sure. People don't live long. One is quickly swept up in the rapid river that is life and years go by as though they were drops of water still shining in the sun as they are tossed by the rocks. Perhaps they or we will be too enthralled by this to make our own music, or spread our knowledge into shapes that one can look at or read about later.

I hope I'm lying.

Hmm. I don't know that machines will ever be able to produce music the way people can: music is emotion, a quality machines do not have. But the work itself is good: I like subtly seeing the fiddler's inner workings. Thought provoking.

We will never really know if machines can experience emotion. I don't really see why not.

Beautiful! But can I nit pick? Her bow hand stinks. Otherwise this is superb. Being interested in Luthierie as I am I can't help but be impressed by this and I'd love to try carving a scroll like that, i.e. backwards.

Yeah you're right. But right now I'd rather work on new stuff than rework old stuff.

I understand completely. And there's no reason to rework it because it works as it is. I just happened to notice the bad bow hand because I play. And the backward scroll is perfect stylistically since it echos the other scollies.

The colours added to the simplistic design give a sense of warmth, and yet there's the perfect amount of detail to balance it.
