Electronic and Experimental Music details the history of electronic music throughout the world, and the people who created it. From the theory of sound production to key composers and instrument designers, this is a complete introduction to the genre from its early roots to the present technological explosion. Key features to this revision include added pedagogy designed to make the book increasingly classroom-friendly, listening guides to illustrate important works of electronic music, and significant new coverage on the work of African American and women artists in the field of electronic music--two long neglected aspects of this genre.
