On the legacy of Xenakis' innovations in music notation for contemporary composers Trained in mechanical engineering, Greek-French composer Iannis Xenakis (1922-2001) transformed mathematical models into architectonic musical entities. In the late 1970s Xenakis developed a digital apparatus that rendered waveforms drawn on a tablet as musical compositions. The device was called UPIC, or Unité Polyagogique Informatique du CEMAMu, named for the French contemporary music research institute that Xenakis had helped found a decade earlier. The device proved to be an essential tool for the development of contemporary music--a version of the software is still used by today's composers. Featuring archival materials, this book examines the origins of Xenakis' UPIC. It also serves as a compositional tool: embedded QR codes allow readers to create their own sound-images from UPIC compositions.

"Harley approaches the music from the point of view of a musician; his thesis rests upon the conviction that Xenakis's theoretical formulations can be explained and understood without recourse to complicated mathematics. The "scientific" tendency of the composer's own explications of his work has baffled and often alienated many who have responded strongly to the music. Harley's book allows the interested student and scholar to delve deeply into the music while explaining the structures and theories that inform them in easy-to-understand terms. The book concludes with an up-to-date bibliography, discography, and a list of works."--BOOK JACKET.

This volume provides a comprehensive introduction to foundational topics in sound design for embedded media, such as physical computing; interaction design; auditory displays and data sonification; speech synthesis; wearables; smart objects and instruments; user experience; toys and playful tangible objects; and the new sensibilities entailed in expanding the concept of sound design to encompass the totality of our surroundings. The reader will gain a broad understanding of the key concepts and practices that define sound design for its use in computational products and design. The chapters are written by international authors from diverse backgrounds who provide multidisciplinary perspectives on sound in its many embedded forms. The volume is designed as a textbook for students and teachers, as a handbook for researchers in sound, programming and design, and as a survey of key trends and ideas for practitioners interested in exploring the boundaries of their profession.

As mainstream music consumers wait with baited breath for the next musical upheaval, a small core of tech-savvy individuals are re-shaping the aural landscape without the assurance of being part of any larger movement. Their ideologies and creative approaches differ wildly, but they share a desire to take sound beyond the realm of mere entertainment. Drawing on extensive research into the world of audio extremity, Micro-Bionic includes interviews with William Bennett (Whitehouse), Peter Rehberg (Mego) and Peter Christopherson (Throbbing Gristle/Coil).

Computers in Music Education addresses the question of how computer technologies might best assist music education. For current and preservice music teachers and designed as a development tool, reference resource, and basic teaching text, it addresses pedagogical issues and the use of computers to aid production and presentation of students' musical works. Written by a music educator and digital media specialist, it cuts through the jargon to present a concise, easy-to-digest overview of the field, covering: notation software MIDI sound creation downloading music posting personal MP3s for mass distribution. While there are many more technical books, few offer a comprehensive, understandable overview of the field. Computers in Music Education is an important text for the growing number of courses in this area.

A selective survey of the major pioneering composers of the 20th century, this resource focuses on the development of the new emphases in music creation, including tone color and density—elements which prior to 1900 had been subordinated in their treatment and given secondary importance compared to melody and harmony. In addition to presenting general biographies and a list of each of the 123 featured composer’s most prominent works, this sourcebook examines the philosophies and the aesthetic considerations behind the new techniques involved in these primary treatments of density and timbre. From Claude Debussy, Gustav Mahler, and Karlheinz Stockhausen to Julio Estrada, Luigi Russolo, and Otomo Yoshihide, this review provides a means of understanding and appreciating the music predominant in the repertoires of most major, modern-day orchestras.
