Assuming no prior knowledge of the technological development in electronic music on the part of the reader, Dobson introduces and explains anical information in clear, comprehensive entries dealing with common principles and techniques, such as those on the computer, electronic components, and synthesis. Specific products are then referred to as examples of a particular approach. The DECMT works both as a reference work and as a tutorial text, moving from basic principles to specific examples. Included are entries on major commercial instruments and historical information on companies and individuals whose work has been central to the development of electronic instruments. Supplemented by three appendices, a general index, and one of instruments and manufacturers.
