Format: Paperback
This is the best book on the field of computer music I have seen to date. It's a huge book (1200 some pages) covering just about everything in the computer music field, in a clear, easy-to-read style. Signal processing, input devices, editors, music languages, DSP, fourier analysis, it has it all. The bibliography at the end of the book is huge, and makes a great reference. Best of all, this book doesn't cost much more than the average computer book with 1/10 the content. This is a great book!

This a great book. You certainly get your money's worth here. When the book lands on your doorstep, you'll know instantly why you paid for it. The book is full of information that you need to know about computer music. Although there is a lot of technical information on here, it is explained very clearly, and sometimes you can skip the mathematical theories. It is a great point to start a dissertation from. If there is something that you want to explore further which is not in the book, then you can always go to the 100+ page bibliography at the back. Overall it is a great book and is very clearly laid out and explained.

I wish I had come across this book earlier. It has a great history of computers and music, some of which I knew about and others that are real gems. The details and the presentation of the work is excellent.

This book is a perfect introduction to Computer Music for anyone who has a basic understanding of computer technology. It's huge, but the writing is fairly straightforward and it certainly kept my interest. This book's coverage of modern synthesis techniques is the best I have seen in a single text. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in the diverse musical applications of computer technology.
