Analogue Electroacoustic Music refers simply to the means of production in the studio or in the performance of Live Electonic Music. Of interest to Electroacoustic Music Studies is the relationship between the working methods associated with equipment such as the magnetic tape recorder, voltage-controlled synthesizer, mixing desk, and the aesthetics of the music produced by such means. The human-machine interfaces involved in analogue studios differ enomously from those of a computer, and permit a diverse range of approaches, from the highly methodical and formal to the highly physical and improvisatory.
