Electronic music is created by manipulating electronic signals to create sound. Electronic instruments such as the synthesizer, sampler, and the theremin are used to create the sounds in electronic music. The electrical signal is converted into an acoustic signal using loudspeakers or headphones.
Chance Music could be defined as a musical composition that is realized spontaneously by the composer or performer, either alone or with collaborators. Chance music is also any piece of composed music whose performance is left to chance as opposed to being subject to the dictates of a pre-existing score.
A blog devoted to the two major kinds of music. Electronic music and Chance Music which might appeal to the masses.
Electronic music is produced solely by means of electronic musical instruments.
Chance music is composed using techniques involving chance, or the results of some form of random process built into a composition’s structure.

The only way to make a lot of money as a musician is to sell out. This is the lesson that was hammered into me in my years at the Berklee College of Music, and it’s one I’ve seen borne out again and again. There are two ways to sell out, though, and it’s not always obvious which is worse.
One way to sell out is to play music that you think will appeal to the masses, and I suppose that’s what most [Electronic music]-[Chance Music] bands do. The other way to sell out is to play music you don’t like for people who don’t much care either way and wouldn’t be listening if you weren’t up there on stage. In both cases you’re selling your integrity, but the second case at least has this advantage: if you can stand it, you’ll get rich.
I chose the first route. As a result I have spent my life playing in empty rooms for people who are already convinced they like what I do. At least they seem convinced: when I go around selling CDs after my shows, nobody tells me they bought my CD because they thought I sucked.
Electronic music, which is music produced using electronic devices, is a very recent kind of music. It has been around for only about fifty years.
Chance music is also a very recent kind of music. It has been around for only about fifty years.
Electronic music and chance music are very different kinds of music, but both kinds of music have interested people for about the same amount of time.
Electronic music and chance music are also similar in that neither kind of music was popular at all until sixties, but after the sixties both kinds of music grew rapidly in popularity.
Electronic music uses electronic equipment instead of instruments to produce sound. Chance music is a type of modern classical or avant-garde art music which is written using techniques that introduce randomness into the process.
I am interested in two kinds of music: electronic and chance.
Electronic music is created by the use of electronic musical instruments, or by using other electronic means such as tape music, synthesizers, etc. It is interesting for its potential for complexity and experimentation.
Chance music is a type of avant-garde music that uses random processes to create works. The term was coined by John Cage in the 1940s to refer to the work of himself and others in the early twentieth century. It is interesting for its potential to create music that sounds like it was created by humans.
Electronic music is a music that employs electronic musical instruments and electronic music technology in its production. In general a distinction can be made between sound produced using electromechanical means (electroacoustic music), and that produced using electronics only.
Electronic music was once associated almost entirely with Western art music, but from the late 1960s on the availability of affordable music technology meant that music produced using electronic means became increasingly common in the popular domain. Today electronic music includes many varieties and ranges from art music to popular forms such as electronic dance music.
Chance Music is an American rock band formed in Los Angeles, California by singer/songwriter/guitarist Daryl Palumbo and guitarist Justin Beck. The band consists of Palumbo, Beck, drummer Billy Rymer and bassist/backing vocalist Jarrod Alexander. After releasing two albums through Eyeball Records, the group signed to Vagrant Records where they released two more albums before disbanding in 2006. They reformed in 2010 without original bassist Todd Weinstock.
In February 2012, Glassjaw released their first new material in eleven years. A single entitled “All Good Junkies Go to Heaven” was recorded for Adult Swim’s 2012 Singles Program, alongside songs from Flying Lotus,
Electronic music (also known as electronica) refers to musical styles which are largely or entirely produced by electronic means.
The term “electronic music” emerged from the use of early analogue synthesizers in the late 1960s, and was adopted as a blanket term for such music, which was then perceived to form a distinct category. The use of the term has since been broadened in scope to include any music created with electronic musical instruments, or by using audio processing technology.
Electronic music is currently produced with a wide range of instruments and methods including entirely acoustic means (e.g., the acoustic instrument paired with an analog tape recorder) and entirely electronic means (e.g., purely synthesized sounds). There are also hybrids of both approaches, such as the use of tape loops or live electronics combined with an acoustic instrument (e.g., musique concrète).
Music that is created by completely mechanical means (such as player pianos, music boxes, and drum machines) may also be considered electronic music if it is based on sampling, synthesis, or other related forms of digital processing. In its broader sense, electronic music also includes music made using live electronics or electroacoustic means.
