Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leah Hanson
Picture a dance club with lights flashing, bodies jumping, and walls thumping. Most likely the music inside is electronic music. This basic introduction to electronic music reads like a comprehensive "Frequently Asked Questions" about the topic. From what people wear to how to get in on the scene, Cohn explores the electronic music world through images, factual text, and stories from popular artists. Readers will learn how techno was born, what venues attract electronic music artists, and what the new craze Tck is all about. From its early beginnings with simple synthesizers to the current do-it-yourself music editing software, electronic music brings together a wide variety of sounds and abilities. Not limited to just dance music of the 90s, electronic music is making waves as artists continue to challenge what it means to "play" an instrument, and how to take what has already been done and make it something new. For the electronic music enthusiast, familiar artists such as Underworld, Radiohead, Tortoise and The Chemical Brothers are mentioned. A time line, glossary, and suggestions for further exploration conclude this well-researched book. Reviewer: Leah Hanson
