Technology has given musical artists many creative opportunities. COMPOSITION FOR COMPUTER MUSICIANS by Michael Hewitt is aimed toward musicians who are interested in using computer technology to compose music.
The book covers computer programs you can use to score your music and what kind of equipment you'll need to be a computer musician. You'll learn important tips on writing for several different instruments and then focusing on layering the different parts in a recording. Use of effects, mixing, and mastering are covered as well.
There was a point in time when I was composing songs on a computer using Pro Tools and layering all the parts myself. This book surely would have been a great guide to help me make the most of my time during that period. COMPOSITION FOR COMPUTER MUSICIANS will give computer musicians some structure and parameters that will help drive their creativity.
