Techno is a form of electronic dance music that became prominent in Detroit, Michigan during the mid-1980s with influences from electro, New Wave, Funk and futuristic fiction themes that were prevalent and relative to modern culture during the end of the Cold War in industrial America at that time.
The music's producers were using the word "techno" in a general sense as early as 1984 (as in Cybotron's seminal classic "Techno City"), and sporadic references to an ill-defined "techno-pop" could be found in the music press in the mid-1980s.

 Techno Music: A Spirited Defense
Most of the criticisms of techno music I’ve heard fall into three categories — it’s too repetitive, it lacks any real ‘musicianship,’ and it’s too "cheesy." The sad thing is that there’s a lot of techno music that indeed fits the bill in all cases.
Techno music still requires plenty of human intervention to create and perform — the machines are simply the equipment that enables it.
The art music world is finally beginning to open up to acceptance of electro-acoustic music, although it’s still deeply skeptical of anything that’s fully synthetic (electronically generated, as opposed to recorded and modulated.) Through the work of groups like Cabaret Voltaire, there has been a good deal of "cross-pollination" between electronic art and popular music.

Techno is a form of electronic music that emerged in the mid-1980s and primarily refers to a particular style developed in and around Detroit.

More than anything, techno is about the nature of sound, and how certain kinds of sounds can transport the listener to areas of consciousness not necessarily related to everyday "real" world experiences.
A lot of techno music is about sound fundamentals, where the palette consists of wavelength, amplitute and frequency.

 Techno Music from Ray Lynch
By fusing the multi-layered instrumentation of symphonic music with the dynamics of the electric keyboard, Ray Lynch constructed an innovative and unparalleled techno style.
While some have referred to Ray's music using such terms as "techno-ambient" and "techno-pop", Ray defies categorization, but limiting Lynch to a single category may be a mistake.
Ray is a meticulous techno-craftsman who polishes and refines each musical phrase, every voicing and every nuance, separately recording and thoughtfully comparing alternate phrasings and structures, and always insisting on the highest standards of quality.
