The title from the print version of Scientific American is my kind of story. But Ableton Push is just a fancy Simon game (I'm old).

Wade Roush writes for SciAm https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/technology-is-upending-how-mu... that Ableton Live and its Push Controller are examples of how music is being changed by technology. It's not too different from an article featuring yours truly in Iowa City, 1998. Except that you may have heard of the people mentioned in the article. And I was just playing on a Korg, now that I remember. I should have demoed my songs, instead of leaving it silent for the interview.

Interviews are hard!
