About the Author

Dan Warner is Professor of Music at Hampshire College, Massachusetts. He is a composer and electronic artist whose sound and installation work has been presented at festivals around the world, and is co-author of the seminal Audio Culture: Readings in Modern Music (2004).


"There can't really be two ways to say this: Warner's Live Wires is a good book. Warner's intimately experiential/technical descriptions of his favorite instances of every kind and genre of electronic music in the experimental culture--a culture that almost obliterated the boundaries between 'classical' and 'pop'--will get you right inside of his sensitively perceptive ear and his deep knowledge and understanding of the sense and implication of what he has, and you will, come to hear."--Benjamin Boretz, composer
"There are big books, and little books. Books that are large because they collect myriad examples of 'the exact thing you need to know' about a given subject--the volume to which you have gone a hundred times for a hundred different answers. But there are also volumes that, like the Tardis, are bigger on the inside--books that read well, make their point, and then send you elsewhere--they encapsulate how you think of something. Books you circle around and back to as you continue to chase down the ideas they contain. Warner's Live Wires is one of those books."--Gregory Taylor "Cycling '74 "
"When broken down into pieces, the larger picture of what 'electronic' means becomes clear. Warner's book, Live Wires, rips open the term to tell the wider story of the how those tapes and wires and transistors came to transform music into what we take for granted today. . . . A good nerd will have a computer close by with some search tabs open and they will hear a bunch of cool sounds made by the lesser known pioneers of the electronic, the true legends of our current musical landscape."--Christopher Laird "PopMatters "
