Every generation uses the technology available to make its art.  I use a hybrid technology stretching from the 1700s to the present to make mine.  What you'll find in my toolkit is a normal, 18th century violin (made in 1999 by Douglas Cox) plugged into an assembly of hardware and software, making it possible to record myself in realtime and create a music based on violin sounds, augmented with everything from found sound to synthesis.
