Many DJs, gigging musicians, and electronic music producers understand how to play their instruments or make music on the computer, but they often lack the basic knowledge of harmony needed to take their music-making to the next level and compose truly professional tracks. Beneath all the enormously different styles of modern electronic music lie certain fundamentals of the musical language that are exactly the same no matter what kind of music you write. It is very important to acquire an understanding of these fundamentals if you are to develop as a musician and music producer. Put simply, you need to know what you are doing with regard to the music that you are writing. Harmony for Computer Musicians explains harmony fundamentals in the most simple and accessible way possible. Concepts are taught using the MIDI keyboard environment and today's computer composing and recording software. By reading this book and following the exercises contained within it the aspiring music producer/computer musician will be able to great progress toward understanding harmony.
