There's magic on the horizon! (cont'd)
Packet loss concealment research to cover gaps from transmission dropouts is proving that we already have technologies which can do decent "ahead of real-time" prediction. "Pretention" (in phenomenlogy-speak) could be almost science fiction-like. But it's actually not, our brains do it, and it's a part of what philosophers and psychologists would call time consciousness. Add in that simultaneity across larger network distances can be achieved through prediction -- a possibilty which is already under investigation -- and here we go... Musicians enclosed in soundscapes that can be transmitted. Sound objects that are made of network delays.
