Music Education Impact of Electroacoustic Music

Abstract:

In this article, the author tackles three major obstacles that he observes in the teaching of electronic music composition: 1) the science fiction aura; 2) the pedantic pseudo-scientific aura; and 3) the teachers’ own tendency to explain the hardware but let the software look after itself.
