About this Book
A digital musician must manipulate sound precisely. ChucK is an audio-centric programming language that provides precise control over time, audio computation, and user interface elements like track pads and joysticks. Because it uses the vocabulary of sound, ChucK is easy to learn even for artists with little or no exposure to computer programming.

You'll also experience how ChucK enables the on-the-fly musical improvisation practiced by communities of "live music coders" around the world.
