Significance of electronic music
Music is one of the most influential components in the world today. In fact, music plays significant roles in influencing human behavior and practices. Electronic music refers to all types of music played or produced through electronic devices. The twenty-first century is a century of technology whereby everything is done through the use of technology. Technology has brought about electronic devices which are used to play music in the modern world. Electronic music involves various forms and speed. Some forms of electronic music involve house, jungle, techno and trance. Jungle music involves “break” or rap that is mixed and sped up with various sounds. Techno and jungle are almost similar although techno tends to be harder and involves more whistles and horn sounds compared to jungle. However, all these forms of music are produced with the help of electronic devices. In fact, it is impossible to use trumpet to produce house music and thus electronic devices such as computer, turntables, a synthesizer or sampler are very significant in producing electronic music.
