139 pages. "This important new book- the only one of its kind presently available- focuses on three aspects in the use of computers in generating music. First, computer hardware and software for implementing the generation of sounds are discussed under the heading Systems And Programs. Second, the verstility of digital computers in exploring rules of succession and synchronism is demonstrated in the second, Composition. Finally, the problem of judgment entering perception- i.e. what is "beautiful" and what is "ugly" or, to put it into information theoretical terms: what distinguished signal from noise is taken up in the section, Aesthetics. A pocket of the back cover contains four high fidelity records of all the examples mentioned in the text." FINE HARDCOVER, VERY GOOD- DUST JACKETand the 4 -45 rpm records are fine.
