With the ongoing development of algorithmic composition programs and communities of practice expanding, algorithmic music faces a turning point. Joining dozens of emerging and established scholars alongside leading practitioners in the field, chapters in this Handbook both describe the state of algorithmic composition and also set the agenda for critical research on and analysis of algorithmic music. Organized into four sections, chapters explore the music's history, utility, community, politics, and potential for mass consumption. Contributors address such issues as the role of algorithms as co-performers, live coding practices, and discussions of the algorithmic culture as it currently exists and what it can potentially contribute society, education, and ecommerce.

I write this fresh from MusicTech’s annual sojourn to Anaheim, California where, once again, we were lucky enough to spend some hands-on time with a wealth of brand-new music technology, set for release at various points throughout 2019.

The show was an eye-opening experience for various reasons: aside from the pure, giddy thrill of getting to see and hear what the industry has in store for us this year, it was wonderful to see so much eagerness, across the industry, to empower today’s music maker, whatever their budgets and creative ideas may be. This has always been our own modus operandi and it’s heartening to see the same mindset pervading the music-technology landscape.

I am personally honored to have played a key role in creating such a time-honored instrument, and I must confess how delightful it has been to have a chance to pour over the schematics again and recall the whole design experience. I hope you'll have as much fun reading as I and the whole E-mu gang did in producing the SP1200. Enjoy!"

What is a Production Company?
A production company is a company that oversees the creation of a movie or music, TV commercials, documentaries, music videos or other media. They are there from start to finish during the process of making the product. The production company handles cinematography of a pic, sound effects of music and much more. Without the production company it's unacceptable to make an excellent pic or an excellent sound. They are needed by all who have plans to get their creative decisions out there and brought to life.
The nice thing about these companies is that they will make sure the movie or song has some continuity with it. There are so many different separate parts to the company that it would be easy for it to all get mixed up on its own. The production company looks at the product, adds what is needed, and sends out a great piece that is put together perfectly.
