This bibliography is not in any particular order except that I have tried to put the most relevant work nearer to the top.
Note that a search for "electroacoustic music" or "electronic music" on the SFU library site
will lead you to many on-line resources such as
journals, recordings, etc. that you can access with your SFU id & p.w.
