Interactive Composition empowers readers with the skills and insight to compose and perform electronic popular music in a variety of popular styles. This book focuses on the implementation of compositional and production concepts with each chapter culminating in a newly composed piece created by the reader using these concepts. The book begins by introducing the “tools” involved in the creation of interactive composition, the software Ableton Live and Max for Live. The remaining chapters describe particular musical styles and the ways one might compose and perform within this style using the software. As the reader progresses through the book, they will learn to use the software to facilitate their compositional objectives.
