Just finished GEB, I found it really dense and I definitely liked the first half better than the second. Overall a interweaving and at times quirky read!
Edit: Ive been hunting down Allen Strange’s Electronic Music Systems, Techniques, and Controls (Ed 2). Ive been told online that it is the book for synthesis and sound design. I have found a few copies online, however they are too expensive. I have put in an inter-library loan, but it sounds like they are unable to find the book. Does any one have a copy they are willing to loan me? Let me know!
