Abstract:

The author offers the idea that popular music and electroacoustic music have many connections. Each piece of music today is produced by means of loudspeakers. Much non-electronic music might be considered to be electronic if one takes its production techniques into account (e.g. some of Miles Davis’s pieces which were post-produced using a considerable amount of montage). Many research centres have been transformed by the use of large commercial systems such as synthesizers, MIDI, etc.
