The purpose of this thesis was to create an electronic music CD-ROM for young people. The intent of this project was to encourage young people to learn about the basics of sound production, audio effects, and the history of electronic music. The methods used for making this CD-ROM included having interactive demonstrations, animations, graphics. and a variety of colors and text styles. Internet links for further information were also provided.

This was the first educational CD-ROM of its kind. Although there were Internet sites and a few CD-ROMs covering issues of electronic music, most were not interactive and were not designed for young people. It was expected that this CD-ROM would make the learning process more interesting and would hopefully lead young people to more advanced materials on electronic music.
