What is the Meaning & Definition of electronic music

It is known as electronic music to that which is generated through certain electronics such as the synthesizer or sampler, and which can be conceived in its entirety from the sounds and melodies that produce these machines... either to a song already created and completed by an artist, which modifies it through and thanks to the application of this technology giving rise to a new artistic creation that will preserve its base sound and the letter of the original. Obviously and with the provisos of the case, because it is obvious that the technology of that time cannot be compared at all with the now and the modifications that this allows them to make those who produce this kind of music, electronic music has its roots in the beginning of the last century, more precisely in 1910 with the experimentation of the Italian Futurist calls led by Luigi Russolo who made music with sounds and music boxes electronic. From the historical point of view, these first resources could be considered as early versions of this style. Anyway, the aetherphone, invented in 1919 by the Russian physicist Lev Termen Serguéievich, is considered the first electronic musical instrument, that is, the first synthesizer of history.
But, of course, these were simple experiments and dreams of a handful of visionary musicians, who recently would charge something of reality during World War II with the development the first techniques of cutting, splicing and pasting or reverse different fragments of a recorded tape. The magnetic data carrier has been which allowed the formidable editing techniques that would lead to the most modern electronic music experiments.
And obviously with the evolution of the years followed trials, tests and experiments in search of new sounds through new technologies and other tuning as the synthesizer. But the popularity of this musical movement will just for the end of the Decade of the eighties of the last century with the arrival of the techno and house, two of the most recognized styles within the genre, which began to be disseminated by European Djs and producers. Later, some authors devoted their efforts to create different styles, such as the electronic styles of instrumental music (as happened with Jean Michel Jarre) or derivations of the electropop style and other widespread mixed formats.
Meanwhile, it will be the Decade of the nineties which consolidate and become one of the genres most followed by millions of young people around the world to see it. Much of this, undoubtedly, is due to the proliferation of festivals, best known as raves, among the most important are Creamfields and Moonpark, in which this type of music is the sole and absolute star.
Similarly, the cardinal element that defines the success of electronic music has been the dissemination and proliferation of digital production sounds, editing and reconstruction resources. In addition to reducing development costs in a surprising way, computers allow overlapping, the progressive cross-linking (fading), the alteration of scales and tones and, above all, the possibility of taking a previous song of any style and modify it in such a way of turning it into a new electronic creation. Thus, the now popular remix have led to various pop songs, rock, melodic and even traditional folklore are recombined to give rise to different complete versions, within the framework of technical novelty, but still retains its original charm.
Among the most prominent exponents of today are: DJ Tiesto, Hernán Cattáneo, Paul Oakenfold, Underworld, Paul Van Dyk, David Guetta and, of course, the list continues... You can not forget that this style, originated in English-speaking countries, has reached a remarkable impact with exponents in Latin America. In these first years of the 21st century, electronic music is the most widespread current in discotheques and massive concerts open sky of summer seasons, given that its particular characteristic allows the rapid temptation of dance and the infectivity of rhythm leads to enjoy this musical style that seems to have come to stay.
