Robots At The Stage Door

The 56th annual Grammy Awards ceremony on Sunday night reflected new respect for electronic music. Daft Punk, a French duo who hide their faces under robot-like helmets and have become elder statesmen of the electronic dance music, won four prizes including album of the year for “Random Access Memories” and record of the year for “Get Lucky,” their ubiquitous hit with Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers. The same evening Kraftwerk was honored with a alifetime award grammy. It seems about time that the musical theatre discovers electronic music. It should be easy to convince producers. I'm sure they'd love to replace live musicians by robots, samples and computers!
