This chapter describes the development of computer music. By the middle of the 1970s, the development of computer music had expanded to embrace not only software synthesis and computer-assisted composition but also a variety of hybrid synthesis applications. However, the complexities of digital technology and the associated expense still concentrated activities in the hands of the few, for the most part enjoying support from well-endowed institutions and organizations. While this exclusivity was slowly beginning to erode, the longer-term development of the medium was still highly dependent on the activities of leading research institutions. Two of these are described: the Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics and the Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique.

Keywords:   electronic music, computer music, computer-assisted composition, digital technology, hybrid synthesis, Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics, Institut de Recherche et Coordination Acoustique/Musique
