  • Music and Computers: A Theoretical and Historical Approach

    This book provides a resource and guide for those just beginning to look at the field of computer music, as well as for more advanced computer composers who might benefit from a fresh insight.

  • Introduction to Sound Processing (Davide Rocchesso)

    Sound manipulation is an activity that find an increasing number of practitioners in the fields of artistic expression, technology, and science. This book is aimed at providing such language and mathematical, algorithmic, and computational tools.

  • Computer Music: Sound Science and Technology (Wikibooks)

    This book is a comprehensive guide and reference that covers all aspects of computer music, including digital audio, synthesis techniques, signal processing, musical input devices, performance software, editing systems, algorithmic composition, MIDI, synthesizer architecture, system interconnection, and psychoacoustics.

  • The Theory and Technique of Electronic Music (Miller Puckette)

    This book develops both the theory and the practice of synthesizing musical sounds using computers, with a theoretical description of one technique or problem area and a series of working examples, covering a wide range of applications.

  • Programming Electronic Music in Pure Data (Johannes Kreidler)

    The book is designed for self-study, principally for composers. It begins with explanations of basic programming and acoustic principles then gradually builds up to the most advanced electronic music processing techniques, using Pure Data (Pd).

  • The Haskell School of Music - From Signals to Symphonies

    This book is a textbook on functional programming in Haskell, with a strong focus on computer music concepts and applications. It describes Euterpea, a computer music library developed in Haskell, that allows programming computer music applications both at the note level and the signal level.

  • Sonifying Processing: The Beads Tutorial (Evan X. Merz)

    This book introduces audio programming to Processing programmers through the Beads library. It covers topics such as synthesis, sampling and general sound-mangling in such a way that is appropriate for beginners, or more experienced programmers.

  • Computer Music using SuperCollider and Logic Pro (David Cottle)

    This text is a compilation of courses materials in Music Technology, Digital Synthesis, and Computer Assisted Composition. It blends electro-acoustic composition exercises with SuperCollider and Logic Pro topics.

  • Physical Audio Signal Processing (Julius O. Smith III)

    This book describes signal-processing models and methods that are used in constructing virtual musical instruments and audio effects. The goal of this book is to enable the reader in developing virtual musical instruments and audio effects that can be boiled down to algorithms and executed by a computer.

  • Introduction to Digital Filters: with Audio Applications (J. Smith III)

    This book is a gentle introduction to digital filters, including mathematical theory, illustrative examples, some audio applications, and useful software starting points.

  • Spectral Audio Signal Processing (Julius O. Smith III)

    One can say that human hearing occurs in terms of spectral models. As a result, spectral models are especially useful in audio applications. This is the basis of modern audio compression techniques. The chapters are organized in a progression from basic spectrum analysis to more advanced frequency-domain signal processing.

  • Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT): with Audio Applications

    Detailed derivation of the Discrete Fourier Transform (DFT) and its associated mathematics, including elementary audio signal processing applications and matlab programming examples.

  • Mathematics and Music (David Wright)

    An investigation of the interrelationships between mathematics and music, reviewing the needed background concepts in each subject as they are encountered. It explores the common foundations of the two subjects, which are developed side by side.

  • Music: A Mathematical Offering (David J. Benson)

    This book provides a wealth of information to understand, at varying levels of technicality, the interplay between two ancient disciplines. A must-have book if you want to know about the music of the spheres or digital music and much in between.

  • How Music and Mathematics Relate (David Kung)

    Understanding the connections between music and mathematics helps you appreciate both, even if you have no special ability in either field - from knowing the mathematics behind tuning an instrument to understanding the features that define your favorite pieces.

  • Strange Attractors: Creating Patterns in Chaos (Julien C. Sprott)

    Describes a simple method for generating an endless succession of beautiful fractal patterns by iterating simple maps and ordinary differential equations with coefficients chosen automatically by the computer. Each pattern produces a corresponding piece of fractal music.

  • The Music Internet Untangled: Using Online Musical Services

    This book provides a primer on the different types of online music services: what they are good for, and how to use them for music discovery. Though many of the service details are now dated, the fundamentals haven't changed.
