Who will protect the music?

The author of the article “The Age of Electronic Music” believes that the music for acoustic instruments, the highest achievement of which he considers symphonic music, is in the past. The future belongs to electronic music, which he asks not to be confused with “pop music”, in which electronic instruments are used “primitively”. He calls such music applied music and considers it unworthy – this is simply “low-grade pseudo-electronic opuses.” A lot of words were told to them about the “poverty of colors” even of a symphony orchestra, whose “color arsenal” “does not exceed two dozen timbres” (the counting accuracy is amazing!).

Sympho-electronic music

Electronic music is music whose creation uses electronic musical instruments and technology. Electronic music consists of sounds that are formed using electronic technologies and electromechanical musical instruments. Examples of electromechanical musical instruments are the Tellarmonium, the Hammond organ and the electric guitar. Pure electronic sound is obtained using such instruments as a theremin, a synthesizer and a computer.

Due to its moderate cost, they are now available to the general public, and not just to major recording studios, as it was before. This event dramatically changed the image of popular music – many rock and pop artists began to use synthesizers. Today, electronic music includes a large number of different styles from experimental academic music to popular electronic dance music. Continue reading
