Product description


This is the most important book written in the last decade in the field of electronic music. Together with the new Csound technology, it will revolutionize electronic music.

(Max Mathews, Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics, Stanford University)

Written for the technically astute, The Csound Book and its accompanying CD-ROM provide a vast resource for seasoned Csound users to expand their use of the language. With its numerous examples and tutorials, this tome also makes Csound more accesible to a new generation of more musically-oriented individuals. As such, it marks a potential turning point in the field of computer musci. This is an important text.

(Marcia Bauman, Composer, co-creator of the International digital Electroacoustic Music Archive at Stanford University)

This book provides both a theoretical introduction and practical hints to use Csound and to tailor it to the reader's own needs. It is an excellent tutorial and much more, since a host of distinguished contributors make their own developments available. I look forward myself to developing my own sonic and musical tools with the Csound Book.

(Jean-Claude Risset, composer, Directeur de recherche, Laboratoire de Mecanique et d'Acoustique of CNRS)
