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 and Apply this knowledge in the development of your very own electronic composition.
