Book Description

Computer music is the applications of computing technology in music composition. It includes the theory and application of new and existing technologies and basic aspects of music, such as sound synthesis, digital signal processing, sound design, sonic diffusion, acoustics, and psychoacoustics.

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.

It provides a step-by-step introduction to the entire field of computer music techniques. Written for nontechnical as well as technical readers, it uses hundreds of charts, diagrams, screen images, and photographs as well as clear explanations to present basic concepts and terms.

Mathematical notation and program code examples are used only when absolutely necessary. Explanations are not tied to any specific software or hardware.Curtis Roads has served as editor-in-chief of Computer Music Journal for more than a decade and is a recognized authority in the field.
