Electronic Music in Society: A blog about electronic music and its impact on society.

Electronic music is a form of popular music which employs electronic musical instruments, digital instruments and circuitry-based music technology. In general a distinction can be made between sound produced using electromechanical means (electroacoustic music), and that produced using electronics only. Electromechanical instruments include mechanical elements, such as strings, hammers, and so on, and electric elements, such as magnetic pickups, power amplifiers and loudspeakers. Examples of electromechanical sound producing devices include the telharmonium, Hammond organ, and the electric guitar, which are typically made loud enough for performers and audiences to hear with an instrument amplifier and speaker cabinet. Pure electronic instruments do not have vibrating strings, hammers, or other sound-producing mechanisms. Devices such as the theremin, synthesizer, and computer can produce electronic sounds.

The first electronic devices for performing music were developed at the end of the 19th century, and shortly afterward Italian futurists explored sounds that had not been considered musical. During the 1920s and 1930s, electronic instruments were introduced and the first compositions for electronic instruments were made. By the 1940s, magnetic audio tape allowed musicians to tape

Electronic music is a form of art that you can use different instruments to create a beat or a song. You can use these instruments such as synthesizers, computers, sequencers, or any other object that makes sound. Electronic music has been around since the late 1800s when people started to realize they could manipulate sound by using electricity. The first electronic instrument was the telharmonium which was invented in 1897 by Thaddeus Cahill. It weighed over 200 tons and used dynamos to produce sounds. Due to its size and weight it wasn’t very portable and there were not many venues for this music to be played. Other electronic instruments such as the theremin, ondes martenot, and synthesizer were developed later in the 1920s through the 1950s, but were not very popular due to their lack of portability and ability to play more than one note at a time. This changed when Robert Moog began working on an instrument that could be used by musicians all over the world. His first synthesizer was debuted at the Audio Engineering Society convention in New York City on October 28th 1964 and has had a lasting impact on music ever since.

Last week I went to a concert that featured a variety of artists from different genres of music, the performance was very well put together and was enjoyed by the audience who consisted of all ages, colours, creeds and genders, making this performance a great example of how electronic music can bring people together in a way traditional instruments can’t.

Electronic music has permeated every aspect of our lives: we walk in it, we drive in it, and even if we don’t like it, we can’t avoid it. One might even argue that there is no greater modern art form than electronic music.

This blog will explore the history of electronic music, from the home-made apparatuses of the early 20th century to the modern machines and software used today. We’ll look at how these technologies have changed over time, how they’ve been (and continue to be) used by artists and producers, and how these technologies impact society.

The late 1960’s and early 1970’s were times of great change and excitement for popular music. The changes that were happening around the world in terms of social, political and technological advancement seemed to be reflected in the music being made by artists and bands from all over the globe. It was an era where musical boundaries were broken down, and new techniques that had previously been the stuff of science fiction were being used to create amazing sounds. Electronic music was not a genre that anyone would have identified at this time, but it was an umbrella term that could be used to describe all of the experimental sounds which emerged during this period.

The first electronic instruments started to emerge around the turn of the 20th century, with the ondes martenot and later theremin being amongst the earliest examples of what we would now call electronic music. Other instruments would follow suit, with many composers experimenting with new forms of synthesis, or using technology as part of their creative process. Foremost amongst these composers was Pierre Schaeffer, whose étude aux chemins de fer is often cited as one of the first pieces of musique concrète (a type of experimental music which uses recorded sounds as a source material). It is hard to imagine now, but many people at

The first electronic musical instruments were developed at the end of the 19th century. Musical applications of electric technology were explored by several researchers during this period, but the most important ones were John Ambrose Fleming and Lee de Forest, who invented the vacuum tube. In 1904, de Forest invented a version of the triode vacuum tube that could be used for audio amplification. By 1920, composers such as Edgard Varèse and Edgar Varese were using electronic instruments in their compositions. It was not until World War II that electronic instruments started to become widely available.

In 1948, Robert Moog (who would later become better known for his synthesizer) built an electronic oscillator at Columbia University. This device was based on an idea that had been proposed by Harry Olson, who worked with Harry Partch at the Bell Telephone Laboratories. Moog’s device allowed musicians to control a sound source with a keyboard and foot pedals. The result was extremely popular among musicians, who used it to create new sounds.

The 1960s saw the rise of electronic music as a genre. Bands like Kraftwerk and Pink Floyd began using synthesizers in their music, which led to new styles such as techno and house music being created. By the 1980s, electronic dance music had
