• A new chapter—Contemporary Practices in Composing Electronic Music.

• Updated presentation of classic electronic music in the United Kingdom, Italy, Latin America, and Asia, covering the history of electronic music globally.

• An expanded discussion of early experiments with jazz and electronic music, and the roots of electronic rock.

• Additional accounts of the vastly under-reported contributions of women composers in the field.
