  Electronic music - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The development of the techno sound in Detroit, Michigan and house music in Chicago, Illinois in the early to late 1980s, and the later UK-based acid house movement of the late 1980s and early 1990s all fueled the development and acceptance of electronic music into the mainstream and to introduce electronic dance music to nightclubs.
Electronic music, especially in the late 1990s fractured into many genres, styles and sub-styles, too many to list here, and most of which are included in the main list.
The genre of ambient electronic music was formed at the turn of the 1970s in Germany by Popol Vuh, Klaus Schulze and Tangerine Dream.

Music as art, our so-called occidental music, is hardly four hundred years old; its state is one of development, perhaps the very first stage of a development beyond present conception.

Reed Ghazala (self-taught electronic designer, author and composer) is the most significant figure in contemporary electronic art music, being the artist behind the "circuit-bending" school.

Modern Electronic composition is considered to have begun in force with the development of musique concrète and tape recorders in 1948, only to rapidly evolve with the creation of early analog synthesizers.
In the 1970s, this style was mainly popularised by Kraftwerk, who used electronics and robotics to symbolise and sometimes gleefully celebrate the alienation of the modern technological world; to this day their music remains uncompromisingly electronic.

It is safe to say that electronic music's appeal is based, to a certain extent, on its severe lack of boundaries and definitions and its refusal to be pinned down and shaped by outside forces.
Any music that is generated electronically is synthesized, but synthesizers are commonly defined as keyboards that emulate the sounds made by traditional instruments, especially pianos, organs, and string instruments.
Dark music is music that emphasizes the low end, or bass, sounds that are so common in all variations of hip hop and in the more extreme (that is, louder) areas of electronic music, like industrial.
