Electronic music is all music created, modified and recreated with the help of electronic equipment and instruments, such as: computers, composition software, synthesizers, digital recorders...

Electronic music: structure

Electronic music has a definite structure, but it can vary with each producer and composer. This "structure" functions as a sort of (standard) layout to follow, upon which most songs are built. Electronic music is divided into a few strategic points, on which the whole structure is based:
- Introduction: the introduction is the beginning of the song. As the music is played, the elements integrate more and more. Its duration varies a lot for each composer, but it is generally between 15 seconds and 1 minute.
- Pause: the point in the music where the track develops and gives coherence to the music.
- Accumulation: the point of tension (climax)
- Drop: the most explosive and aggressive point of the music, where the elements are concentrated to fill the drop.
- Finishing: the part of the song where it loses elements and heads toward the end
