Electronic and Experimental Music: Technology, Music, and Culture provides a thorough treatment of the relevant history behind the marriage of technology and music that has led to the state of electronic music today. Beginning with an early history of electronic music before 1945, the book outlines key composers, inventions, and concepts, ranging from Edgard Varèse to Brian Eno; musique concrète to turntablism; and compositional techniques used in both analog and digital synthesis.

Features:

  • Reader’s guides and summaries at the beginning and end of each chapter
  • Innovations boxes providing a unique profile of an influential individual in the field of electronic music
  • Listen playlists recommending key recordings in each musical genre mentioned in each chapter
  • Milestones timelines summarizing the major technological and musical innovations discussed in each chapter.

About the Author:

Thom Holmes is a composer and music historian. He studied composition with Paul Epstein in Philadelphia, was the long-time publisher of the magazine Recordings of Experimental Music (1979-1985), and worked with John Cage.

Review:

'The book is a superlative intersection of history and practice. With its charts, pictures, historical antecedents, and well-explained concepts, Electronic and Experimental Music is an essential resource for anyone interested in extraordinary sound.' Chris DeLaurenti, The Stranger

'This third edition effectively replaces both previous editions due to substantial additions and a well-executed reorganization... Holmes does an excellent job of avoiding unnecessary technical jargon while providing specific information on the analog techniques and digital software and hardware that have driven the development of this genre... This well-known history remains an invaluable guide for those hoping to gain a firm grounding in the history and culture of electronic music...  Highly recommened.' - CHOICE
