This chapter focuses on live electronic music or, to be more specific, compositions wholly or largely based on live synthesis, which became a major sphere of activity during the 1960s. It details events in Europe where the most coherent transition from established studio techniques to live synthesis occurred. It also describes how John Cage's growing interest in live electronics provided the catalyst for the birth of a number of live electronic ensembles in America that considered themselves the pioneers of a new art form that embraced aspects of progressive jazz and even rock.

Keywords:   electronic music, live synthesis, electronic sounds, Europe, jazz, rock
