Musicianship in the Digital Age from Course Technology and written by Brent Edstrom effectively combines music technology with musicianship. The book provides instruction on sequencing, synthesis, loop-based tools, and editing, with insights on how to actually use that technology to record original compositions. Organized into three parts, the first two parts cover the technological and theoretical aspects of music production while the third part ties together all of the skills learned by presenting fifteen demonstration scores and recordings with a detailed description of the entire production process. Each chapter also features helpful tips and suggested activities that, along with the companion CD, help solidify the skills learned. Readers will learn many musical concepts that will enhance the creative process and foster a versatile approach to sequencing and composition.

About the Author: For the past twenty years, Brent Edstrom has utilized music technology as an integral part of an active career as a performer, composer, arranger, transcriber, and music synthesist. Highlights of industry work include hundreds of arrangements and transcriptions for the Hal Leonard Publishing Corporation, music for industrial films and regional television, arrangements for symphony orchestra, and session work for a wide variety of recording projects. In the realm of traditional composition, his pieces have been featured at universities and major festivals such as the International Trumpet Guild. His theoretical work includes an ongoing publishing project on the topic of music notation algorithms in C++. Edstrom currently works as a freelance arranger for the Hal Leonard Corporation and coordinates the music theory and composition program at Whitworth College.
