Future trends in music

The Inevitable Guitar Hero Controller Band Finally Surfaces
A band called The Guitar Zeros deciphered the Guitar Hero controller's data commands and connected them to the limitless Max/MSP software to create music more complex than what would seem to be possible with a five-button fretboard.
Both videos are worth watching. I expect that some version of this will become commercially available for 'musicians' in the next few years.
