Historical Electroacoustic Instruments

Sound Production and Manipulation [SPM]  >  Electroacoustic Instruments  ]

This term represents a collection of instruments that have been proven significant in terms of the evolution of the field. Although of great interest and significance to the development of electroacoustic music, the present form of this glossary has not attempted to provide a comprehensive list of individual ’early’ instruments.

(Bibliographical references and hypertext links will be supplied in this area during future development phases of the EARS resource).
