What is Csound?
Csound is a very powerful music synthesizer, effects
processor, and sequencer. It can be integrated with a
wide variety of software to create electro-acoustic music.
Csound is a programming language in which you program the
sounds and events that you want in the music or program
the effects and signal processing that you want to apply
to the music.
Being a programming language, Csound can prove daunting
to a lot of musicians; however, once one learns even a
small amount of the Csound language, one can see an
infinite amount of possibilities in creating music.
Csound is free software and has a lot of components that
have been created for it that can be integrated with
Originally created by Barry Vercoe, the Csound family of
software can be found at its mother site, www.csounds.com.
The possibilities are endless, and the amount of add-ons
and integrated software created for Csound is endless.
This album was a product of Csound composition and is
dedicated to the continued use of Csound by electro-
acoustic composers in the unfolding 21st century.
Thank you Barry!
