Electronic and Experimental Music, sixth edition, now available

If you still like to read, maybe pick up a copy of the new edition of my book, Electronic and Experimental Music (Routledge, 2020).

Many instructors have adopted the eBook version for their online courses. I think the best version of the eBook comes from Vitalsource.

The book is available in print and eBook versions, both identical in content. This edition of the work is quite a bit larger than before so getting the eBook may be a more practical option for many. One reason for the added length is that we took the decision to add a 30+ page appendix listing Historic Studios of Electronic Music by World Region, 1948-70 rather than put it on the companion website. Also, the book features a much needed reorganization around chronology, making the chapters simpler and the task of tracking down information easier. For example, if you want to learn about the synthesizers and artists who used, for example, EMS synthesizers, there is a chapter devoted to this one topic, along with other major synths. I hope you will explore the new Table of Contents and let me know what you think.

The companion website offers audio tracks and quizzes to accompany the chapters.

Happy reading and thanks for your interest.
