Music and Technology: Problems and Perspectives

1992

In Paynter, J. et al. (eds.) Companion to Contemporary Musical Thought: Volume 1. London: Routledge: 565-582.

In this chapter, the author addresses the then current relationship between music and technology (1992). Noting that the mushrooming of the science of information technology had brought about a qualitative change in our ability to handle and manipulate musical data of various kinds, he discusses both the artistic promise offered by such technological developments as well as the pitfalls.
