ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5

electroacoustic music

Electroacoustic music is like playing with sounds and music using computers, speakers, and microphones. It's like making music with toys that can talk and sing!

Think of it like this: imagine you have a bunch of toys, like a teddy bear or a robot. Now, instead of just playing with them, you can use a computer to make different sounds and make the toys talk, sing, or make funny noises.

In electroacoustic music, we use special equipment to record sounds, like people singing or playing instruments, and then we use a computer to change the sound. We can speed it up, slow it down, make it louder or quieter, add special effects, or even make it sound like an animal or a robot!

Then, we can use speakers to make the sound come out and play it for people to listen to.

Sometimes, electroacoustic music can sound strange or different than regular music. It's like listening to a really cool science experiment or watching a magic trick!
