Description

Nakra presents a wonderful conception-that the building blocks of music theory and computational thinking can be (and should be!) learned in tandem. Using Max/MSP as the programming language, Nakra guides the reader through clear tutorials, grounded explanations, and easily digestible examples of musical structures, algorithms, and the mathematical reasoning that binds them together.

Some of today's top conservatory students are also coders and competent programmers without any qualms about digital media, embracing science and technology with ease. As Youngmoo Kim states in the Foreword, we are overdue for such a book as Constructing Music, catching up to today's music making and beyond. In this book, Teresa M. Nakra ushers in the exciting new era of more technology-inclusive pedagogy.

It is high time our music theory pedagogy was re-evaluated to be broader and more inclusive, and to better serve the needs of the next generation of talented young musicians. Teresa M. Nakra sets out an eye-opening new approach to teaching, learning, and understanding the human fundamentals of music, and it deserves to be on the desk of every music teacher and student

Teresa M. Nakra is Professor of Music, Design, and Creative Technology at The College of New Jersey, where she coordinates Music Technology activities. She is a recipient of the Doris Cohen Levi Prize, the David McCord Prize, the Michael C. Rockefeller Memorial Fellowship, and research fellowships from IBM, Motorola, and Interval Research Corporation. Nakra has designed interactive music systems for museums, music festivals, and concert halls across the United States, Europe, and Japan.
