Abstract and Keywords

This chapter discusses Live Electronic Preparation (LEP) as a bridge between the world of acoustic and electronic music. Electronics in the service of music have been developing very rapidly. The ability to use electronic equipment, including having command of musical programs and virtuosity in handling controllers, belongs in the realm of the new type of musician. When the frontline of progress sees the emergence of still newer devices, it is perhaps worthwhile to take a step back and look in retrospect at the pros and cons. How can traditional values be combined with the potential of today? LEP is only one attempt to standardize some of the phenomena from the milieu of live electronics.

Keywords: interactive audio, live electronics, real-time processing, LEP technique, mixed composition, virtuosity
