MEDIA REVIEWS

'Hugill's text, in keeping with his subject - the digitally networked, culturally savvy musician - reaches beyond the mere printed page through the inclusion of copious and wide-ranging listening examples, recommended further reading and creative projects... this book ticks all of the educational boxes replete with a wealth of resources to satisfy both the student and educator alike... one of the major strengths of this book is the author's lateral thinking and his almost virtuosic ability to draw together a wealth of technical and aesthetic ideas in order to illustrate his points... The Digital Musician is a highly stimulating book that asks of its readers as many questions as it attempts to answer. As such it is strongly recommended.' - Organised Sound

'The Digital Musician is an important summary of key issues concerning music practitioners using digital technologies. As an electronic musician, I found the volume stimulating and as potentially prompting further investigation into the field... [it] is a stimulating resource for students, educators and artists looking to expand their skills and examine their inspirations and motivations.' - Martin Koszolko, RMIT University, Dance Cult
