 Dr Kent's Electronic Music Box (1951)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
However, it was felt that a musician usually "records" his manual manipulation rather precisely in his brain before a concert by repetitive rehearsal and that the losses by recording this operation on paper would be exceeded by the gains.
The output of the formant control stage is turned on and off by a keying stage that again uses a dc voltage for control, The attack and release envelopes of the tone are controlled by varying the time constants of RC circuits.

 Essentials of Music - Composers
During this period his music is marked by strict, mathematically devised proportions of time.
This cemented his beliefs that the goal of music was a "purposelessness," and that the role of the composer was to create situations in which sounds could "simply be." To this end, he continued to devise strategies for creating activities in which sounds could happen.
Along with his musical contributions, he left a large body of writings that explain and exemplify his aesthetic.

Cage had been attempting to express in his music the nine Indian emotions (erotic, heroic, odiousness, anger, mirth, fear, sorrow, wondrousness, and tranquility), and, noticing that even an erotic or heroic piece might draw only laughter from the audience, decided that the attempt to communicate emotion in continually advancing musical styles was futile:
Starting with Music of Changes for piano (1951), Cage's music demonstrated the behavior of the kind of society he hoped would eventually arise in the world.
Whether this is what Karlheinz Stockhausen was after or not, Cardew took Stockhausen to task for the mysticism with which he surrounded himself and his performances, calling it a traditional tool to distract the masses from the fact of their oppression.

 Scaruffi, Piero: A History of Rock Music: 1951-2000   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
This history of rock music is not a history of the charts (which I consider an aberration), but a history of the great ideas introduced by rock musicians over 50 years of relentless innovation, and the history of their greatest albums (regardless of how many copies were sold).
Today, rock music is a genre that employs sampling techniques, electronic instruments, digital/computer technology, cacophony, and ethnic sources.
The roots of today's rock music lie in the technical innovations brought about in the first half of the 20th century.

 Dr Kent's Electronic Music Box (1951)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The Music Box was an analogue 'beat frequency' vacuum tube based synthesiser controlled by a punched paper strip device as used previously in the 1930's by instruments such as Givelet and Coupleaux's 'Givelet' and later on the RCA mkII and Siemens Synthesiser amongst others.
The Music Box was designed to allow control off the 'slurring' of the note, formant filtering control and control of volume and depth and rate of tremolo.
Dr Kent was visited by Harry Olson who later adapted features of his RCA synthesiser to incorporate functions of the Music Box, but the Conn company chose not to exploit the commercial possibilities of the instrument.

 La Folia -- 1951 and Cage's Music of Changes
Music of Changes’ tempo changes appear at the 3 – 5 – 6 3/4 – 6 3/4 – 5 – 3 1/8 points.
It is doubtful anyone would confuse the 1951 Music of Changes with anything by Boulez, though Cage definitely had the Second Sonata’s sonorities in his ear.
Unlike many of his peers, he resisted rejecting the past, though, as with Boulez, the direction he applied to his music’s progress was of the greatest significance.

He brings up again and again the "true fact" that Vaughan Williams's music is confined to the British Isles, apparently because it's not played in Vienna.

Chuck Mancuso's Popular Music And The Underground: Foundations of Jazz, Blues, Country, and Rock, 1900-1950 is an ambitious and comprehensive overview of the history of American popular music.
Mancuso shows the development of modern forms of American music as the results of a process of ever evolving and reciprocal cultural assimilation between the musical expressions of the different races, classes, ethnic groups, and regional identities that comprise American society.
He places special emphasis on cultural analysis of the music business and patterns of consumption to demonstrate that recorded music is a valuable tool for understanding the fabric of American history because it is quite literally a record of collective memory.
