Note
  • Electroacoustic music is found in all genres of music, from pop to the avant-garde. It is important for music students to understand the fundamental skills involved in this art. This book looks at various aspects, including the basics of audio and recording, MISI, synthesis, composing, live performance, and more. With a preface, bibliography, appendix, and index. Figures
  • "This DVD contains example files for The Art and Technique of Electroacoustic Music by Peter Elsea, Computer Music and Digital Audio Series, vol. 26 (2013). Some of these files (especially the movies) are large and will not play optimally from the disk. Copy those files to an internal drive to play. Audio examples have the extension .aif and may be played from the desktop or opened in almost any audio editing program. All audio files are all 16 bit at 44.1 kHz sampling rate. If possible, listen to the examples with an editor that allows you to zoom in on the waveforms. One possible editor is Audacity (available at http://audacity.sourceforge.net/) Movie examples are Quicktime movie files with the extension .mov. If they will not play on a Windows machine, please obtain QuickTime Player for Windows or iTunes from the Apple website. They can be found quickly by going to http://support.apple.com and entering windows quicktime in the search box. Files with the extension .maxpat are Max/MSP patches. To run these go to http://www.cycling74.com and download the trial version of Max 6. These materials are copyright 2013 by Peter Elsea and A-R Editions, Inc. (www.areditions.com). Under"fair use," the contents of this disc may be used in conjunction with the text as the sources for selected exercises, study materials, and for classroom demonstrations.
