About the Author:

Curtis Roads is Associate Professor of Media Arts and Technology, with a joint appointment in the Department of Music, at the University of California, Santa Barbara.


"Roads and Strawn have written an excellent overview addressing the pertinent issues for each section to tie it all together, plus added extensive referencing and a comprehensive index, all of which makes this book thoroughly useful as a reference for study or research." Mix

The computer and its profound influence on musical literature and musical thought is here to stay and we are lucky to have such a well planned and comprehensive reference as Foundations of Computer Music. There is no question in my mind that it should be a staple in the library of every composer and every person interested in the music of our time.

(Morton Subotnick, composer/codirector of the composition program California Institute of the Arts)
