Electronic technology changed music making forever. With a loudspeaker to convert electrical signals into sound, a wide range of completely new, artificial sounds could be created.
In this project you will:
- Understand the technology that makes electronic music possible.
- Learn about the basic scientific properties of sound, and hear how soundwave shape affects the sound that we hear.
- Discover the composers who first experimented with electronic music, setting the foundation for much of the pop music that we hear today.
- Apply this knowledge in the development of your very own electronic composition.
