Abstract and Keywords

This article explains the author's experience in the world of computer music. In the 1960s, the author eschewed synthesis and found his own way to generate electronic sound, which allowed him to perform his music in real time in the so-called classical electronic music studio. The studio consisted of a small variety of electronic test equipment, a large telephone style patch bay, amplifiers, speakers, and two professional Ampex stereo tape machines. The author had discovered tape head delay and that he could use more than one tape machine to add distance between playback heads for longer time delays. In his experience with long practice sessions playing hisy accordion, he had noticed that his hands usually had a very pleasant tingling sensation that he enjoyed.

Keywords: computer music, electronic sound, telephone style patch bay, amplifiers, speakers
