This article will discuss not so much about noise, as you might think, after reading the title, but about the music played by the musicians and the musicians themselves. The author sketched a kind of classification of people writing electronic music. Obviously, this article could be supplemented, and recall a few more types. It is also obvious that the author’s opinion is subjective, and you don’t need to take this classification as a reference tool, but you can learn something.

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
