Product description

From the Back Cover

We live in a digital era where computers can be involved in all aspects of music production, performance and dissemination. Computers have inspired and realised new music, and support novel ways to analyse and model existing music.

An up-to-date, core undergraduate text, Introduction to Computer Music deals with both the practical use of technology in music and the key principles underpinning the discipline. It targets both musicians exploring computers, and technologists engaging with music, and does so in the confidence that both groups can learn tremendously from the cross-disciplinary encounter. It is designed to approach computer music as its own subject and strongly bridge the arts to computing divide, benefiting and reconciling both musicians and computer scientists.

Key features include

- An essential first point of reference introduction to the field.

- An emphasis on accessibility and a strong didactic approach.

- Applicability to many different software packages without dependence on any single one

- Pathways through the book to avoid or embrace mathematical detail

You will need little or no prior experience of computer programming itself, and may not have an extensive background in mathematics or music, but this highly engaging textbook will help you master many disciplines at once, with a focus on both fascinating theories and exciting practical applications.

Nick Collins is a lecturer in computer music at the University of Sussex, running the BA and BSc music informatics degree programmes.
