9780132076050: The Development and Practice of Electronic Music

You will find this new introduction to electronic music a flexible and useful approach to the many artistic and technical aspects of the field. Beginning with the origins and history, the book goes on to a practical discussion of sound, hearing, and electronics information vital to your understanding.

A discussion of the tape studio and how music is produced there, combined with a thorough coverage of voltage-controlled synthesizers, will provide you with solid background material leading to an introduction to the use of digital computers for electronic composition.

Each chapter in the book assumes no previous understanding of the field. A chapter on history explains why and how the interest in electronic music developed. A chapter on acoustics and electronics describes the properties of sound in a way that can be used to produced electronic music. The book helps to understand the differences in making electronic music in the tape studio with a synthesizer, a computer, or with live electronic musical instruments. Included is a section of composers writing about their own compositions, along with photographs of electronic music studios, synthesizers and famous performances of live-electronic music, as well as a detailed bibliography.
