Rock and Pop Electronic Music
During the late 1960s, rising expenditure on basic electronic mixing and amplification equipment by the commercial music sector led to the acquisition of increasingly sophisticated studio and stage resources. A growing curiosity with the synthesis and processing of sound led a number of major rock and pop groups to acquire state-of-the-art resources, offering them creative opportunities that far exceeded those available to most noncommercial composers. It is with Techno that the greatest practical links have been forged with the core activities of electronic and computer music. Its origins can be traced to Detroit, at a time when the city had entered a period of high unemployment as a result of a rapid decline in its core manufacturing industries. There was thus a strong imperative to seek inspiration from more modern technologies, and this permeated the world of popular music.
