Especially doubling ( tripling, x4, x5 ...) the cello w/ synths is common.

One reason amongst many that people seek out sometimes older and always music that does not suffer from this, it is something that is being removed from our musical landscape in my view.

Yes, for me nothing beats the sound of real instruments played by real people! Of course the recent development in musical instruments, sound synthesis, and sampling techniques adds really interesting possibilities to music. And I am not against it or anything, because in the end the collaboration between man and machine will bring new possibilities. But nowadays I find myself getting tired of drumcomputers and "fake" sounds (samples or synths). Computers don't have feeling... Even if we could make them feel some sort of emotions (which they probably will in some way in the future), some elements will still be missing: for example the joy of playing, spontaneity and originality. :)

I have been listing to all kinds of rock music all my life. I find myself listening to classical music more and more nowadays :mrgreen:

We must start thinking about what kind of musical legacy we want
to leave behind to Keith Richards :lol:

Characterizing women as sellers and men as buyers in a sexual marketplace offers a basis for several other key aspects of sexual economics theory.
Quote:
Female apes do not usually band together to fight other females, except that occasionally two adult females will work together to steal and kill another one’s baby.
Thus, to women, other women are primarily rivals, and the formation of female alliances and coalitions is much rarer than among men (see below). Adding a highly competitive (i.e., sexually attractive woman) to the social group is a straight loss for the women in the group, insofar as men will choose her above them, and the more the men spend on her, the less they have left to spend on the others.

About girls and their instruments, I asked ~10 students and
3 female teachers about their choice of instruments.

Women teachers could not describe their choices, (piano,guitar)
and said they've played the piano from childhood.

When asked "Why not drums?" they didn't know,
and when I brought up if it is a manly instrument, they
said they've never even thought about it that way.

One of them did say >drums are so loud, and would take up a lot of space>
(vs upright piano)

I could have asked more leading questions, decided not to.

So now that's out there.

These are probably not conscious choices.

Top orchestras by gender and instrument: None have a female trombonist.
