electronic » Wiki
Contemporary electronic music expresses both art music forms including computer music, experimental music, musique concrète, and others; and popular music forms including multiple styles of dance music such as techno, house, trance, electro, breakbeat, drum and bass, synth pop, etc.
A distinction can be made between instruments that produce sound through electromechanical means as opposed to instruments that produce sound using electronic components.
Examples of electromechanical instruments are the telharmonium, Hammond organ, and the electric guitar, whereas examples of electronic instruments are a Theremin, synthesizer, and a computer.
