The Digital sound, which was invented in 1957, does not consist only in a set of techniques designed by engineers for telecommunication and broadcasting. The development of sound synthesis and digitization techniques entails a creative aspect as music and arts are investigated by pioneers who happen to be engineers, musicians and sometimes professional composers at the same time. The book follows this musical and artistic trail as it explores and minutely describes more than 160 experimental pieces and works.

The approach being general it can meet the needs of students, musicologists, practitioners of sound synthesis, multimedia artists ... or any reader wishing to discover about the fascinating relation that has developed between digital technology and music for more than half a century.
