Music in the electronic age

  • Music in the Electronic age is more than the sum of the instruments in a band. Bands are unnecessary. Wind instruments are unnecessary. It's all sound manipulation of computer generated sound programs. Here is a neat chart my son found that shows the kinds of music produced today in the techno programmer age. It charts numerous musical forms I find hard to believe actually exist but apparently do. It's an interactive link. You can magnify points and get a sample of the sound.

  • I'm reminded of a saying a friend of mine used to live by, "What difference will it make to a naked lady riding on a white horse, fifty years from now?

    (Great chart, BTW.)
