Electronic Music

Genres and Categories [G&C]  ]

Originally, music in which the sound material is not pre-recorded, but instead uniquely generated electronically, historically through oscillators and noise generators, currently digitally. There are some, particularly in the United States, who use this term today as a synonym for electroacoustic music. The German equivalent, Elektronische Musik has more precise historical connotations, referring to electronically generated post-serial composition that commenced in the early 1950s in the broadcast studios in Cologne. In French, electronic music is also currently used as a synonym for genres of popular electronic music such as techno.
