Music from deep time to nowadays with deep networks charts
the growth of artificial tools for sound and music creation. Some
milestone examples illustrate how models in the digital age are more
than that, they become the things we use to make and to appreciate
music.  Instruments, venue acoustics, composers, listening preferences
are modeling targets and have experienced this shift. The art of music
has always been an earlier adopter of new tools in a given
technological age and is often a domain which pushes the extremes of
complexity. Today's digital instruments, automata, and assistants, are
no exception. That complexity can reduce to simplicity through
application and practice, a premise which will be explored by touching
on the existence of characters in music.
