Roads reviews his background and describes his books, The Computer Music Tutorial and Microsounds. He discusses the relation of electronic music with acoustic music, and plays some samples of classical music generated by a computer. Roads explains the role of electronic music calling it the liberation of sounds. In contrast to traditional music, electronic notes are expanded into unlimited sound objects. Roads pays close attention to the concept of sound spatialization and how we can generate synthetic portraits for imaginary spaces. He explains his research in microsound and methodologies to decompose sound into elementary particles called “grains.”
