Abstract: As far as music is concerned, instruments have always been part of a cultural?landscape? on technical, expressive and symbolic levels. The presentcontribution explores the changes brought about by the shift that occurredduring the 20th century, from mechanical to digital instruments also named?virtual instruments?. First and foremost, a short recall of some historicalsteps of the technological developments that have renewed our relationship tosound, music, and instruments will be presented. Second, an analysis ofdifferent discourses and terminologies presently used in the domains ofmusicology and computer music will account for the evolution of the notion ofinstrumentality.
