"The third edition of The Digital Musician brings this superb textbook up to date, with new information and a revised structure that provides clarity and insight. Andrew Hugill invites readers to consider the essential question of what it is to be a musician working with digital technologies. The Digital Musician is the only book that approaches the subject in such a fundamentally holistic manner. It should be on every reading list of every university music course."-Paul Jackson, Director of Music and Performance, Anglia Ruskin University, UK "The Digital Musician is a thorough introduction to creative music technologies, written for the twenty-first century musician. It provides not only a practical survey of the techniques but also a panorama of the aesthetics and ideas that surround digital music making. This is recommended reading for anyone ready to jump into the field but not yet acquainted with its fundamentals." -Victor Lazzarini, Dean of Arts, Celtic Studies, and Philosophy, Maynooth University, Ireland "Andrew Hugill's panoramic view of twenty-first century music enables readers to find their unique place in our changing world and to understand where others are coming from-even the weird ones! The Digital Musician presents a thoughtful survey for newcomers while filling in foundations for more experienced readers." -Jeffrey M. Morris, Associate Professor, Department of Performance Studies, Texas A&M University
