What is electronica music?

For each week in our course, you will consider music as a cultural artifact and be assigned either a piece of music or a specific musical artist to explore and analyze for the week. This week, you will be listening to music that is considered “electronica.” As you have read this week, technology moved at a fast pace from the 70s all the way through to the present day. For our guided listening this week, we will be exploring these new technologies. Be sure to read through the entire page, as this particular assignment is formatted slightly different compared to our previous guided listening assignments. In addition to your etextbook, you should expect to complete some research online to respond to these questions. Be sure to use vetted resources—if you aren’t sure what a reliable source is, remember, you can use the CRAP test to determine if your source is reliable! Resources that might help you:
