LESSON 1: Electronic Music History

How did we get to where we are as electronic producers and performers? From composers of avant-garde noise music to modern DJs and producers of new media, technology in music is ubiquitous. As we begin our own odyssey, we’ll take a trip through time and see how electronics have shaped the music of our lives, spawned new methods of sonic exploration and transformed the notion of what it means to be a musician. As many of us consider the studio to be our instrument, we’ll take a look at those who have pioneered this extension of human capability through technology, dating back more than a century. Listening to examples within our interactive curriculum, you’ll hear the unfurling landscape of electronic music and begin to carve out your own special place within it. There is no better time to dive in- a renaissance is currently taking place!
