Theory and Techniques of Electronic Music

A music professor from the University of California at San Diego, Miller Puckette, is in the process of writing a book on electronic music, and the draft version can be found on this site. The book "is about using electronic techniques to record, synthesize, process, and analyze musical sounds." It focuses exclusively on the use of computers and computer music tools in the creation and composition of electronic music. The properties of digital audio signals, sampling and modulating audio streams, and computational techniques are all covered in the book. Although it is only in an early draft form, this online book already has a tremendous amount of information and will be a valuable reference when complete. Material related to the book, including conference papers and audio examples, can be found on Puckette's homepage.
