Electric pianoor 'e-piano', an electric musical instrument whose popularity was at its greatest during the 1960s and 1970s. Many models were designed to replace a (heavy) piano on stage, while others were originally conceived for use in school or college piano labs for the simultaneous tuition of several students using headphones. Unlike a synthesizer or an electronic piano, the electric piano is not an electronic instrument, but electro-mechanical. Electric pianos produce sounds mechanically and the sounds are turned into electronic signals by pickups. In other words, an electric piano is to an acoustic piano as an electric guitar is to an acoustic guitar
any electrical-operated piano, as opposed to one operated by a hand-crank, etc.

Electronic art musicelectronic music has existed, in various forms, for more than a century. Between the time that recording sounds was first made possible and the computer technology of today, a vast amount of change has occurred.

Karlheinz Stockhausen believes that: "In electronic music, generators, tape recorders and loudspeakers should yield what no instrumentalist has ever been capable of. In instrumental music, on the other hand the player, aided by the instrument and the notation, should produce what no electronic music could ever yield, imitate or reproduce"
Electronic music (as a pop genre)
there are now many subgenres of electronic music which include:
technomechanical sounding dance music featuring little melody and more noise
trance musicwith a distinct style of instrumentation focused on complex, uplifting chord progressions and melodies
Goa trancespawning from industrial music and tribal dance, focusing on creating psychedelic sound effects within the songs
house musicfully electronic disco music
big beatusing older drum loops and more melodic elements sampled and looped
drum and bassan offshoot of hardcore and Jamaican dancehall, utilizing quick tempos with sampled break beats, most notably the amen break and the funky drummer
gabber or gabbaa Dutch development on techno, which features extremely high tempos and lots of overdrive and distortion on the music, especially the base drum being distorted into a square wave tone
happy hardcorea slightly more palatable version of Gabba, fusing elements of drum and bass as well
of these subgenres, trance and house are probably the most widespread
Electronic musiciana musician who composes or plays music from synthetic sounds generated with synthesizers, samplers, drum machines or music sequencers. A large portion of today's electronic music is based on samples, which are sampled (digitized) from original instruments or other audio sources. These samples are then edited, transformed and sequenced again to create new musical compositions

Electro-pneumatic actiona control system for pipe organs, whereby air pressure, controlled by an electric current and operated by the keys of an organ console, opens and closes valves within wind chests, allowing the pipes to speak. This system also allows the console to be physically detached from the organ itself. The only connection was via an electrical cable from the console to the relay, with some early organ consoles utilizing a separate wind supply to operate combination pistons
Electropopalso called 'Technopop', a subgenre of synth pop music which flourished during the early 1980s, although the first recordings were made in the late 1970s. Numerous bands have carried on the electropop tradition into the 1990s and 2000s. Electropop is often characterised by a cold, robotic, electronic sound, which is largely due to the limitations of the analog synthesizers used to make the music
Electrostatic printingor 'electron photography', a plateless printing method invented by Chester F. Carlson in 1938, in which a copy of an original can be made by creating a temporary printing surface through electrostatic means. When an electrically charged selenium coated cylinder (drum) is illuminated with small beams of light reflecting off an image's surface, the cylinder loses its electrical charge in those specific areas. After a powdered toner is applied, it only sticks to the non-charged parts of the cylinder. Paper is then pressed against the cylinder transferring the toner to its surface to which it is then bonded with heat. Powders utilising the four colours of the CYMK-process are used to make colour copies. This technology is widely used in copy machines and laser printers

Elementa Harmonicawritten by Aristoxenus of Tarentum (in Italian, Aristosseno di Taranto) (364BCE-304BCE), a Greek peripatetic philosopher and the first Greek musical theorist of note. In music he held that the notes of the scale are to be judged, not as the Pythagoreans held, by mathematical ratio, but by the ear. The only works of his that have come down to us are the three books of the Elementa Harmonica, an incomplete musical treatise
in his Encyclopedia of Tuning, Joe Monzo writes, "When [Aristoxenus'] work was rediscovered by the Italians in around 1450, the idea of 12-tone equal-temperament (the ordinary scale in everyday use today) was a topic of much debate, and many theorists who advocated that tuning interpreted Aristoxenus's approximations of small intervals as a justification for it. They were wrong, or at any rate not entirely correct, but the idea has persisted for over 500 years"

After working for a time as an actor, stage manager, theatre manager, he founded the Elizabethan Stage Society (1894-1905), which by holding performances free of scenery and modern staging approximated the theatrical conditions under which Shakespeare wrote. He spent much of his career researching and lecturing on Elizabethan performance and influenced many theatre practitioners, most of all Harley Granville Barker. His presentations included Shakespeare's Measure for Measure (1893) and Two Gentlemen of Verona (1910), plays by Marlowe and Ben Jonson and Milton's Samson Agonistes (1900). Many of these performances employed Arnold Dolmetsch (1858-1940) to provide contemporaneous music (Lawes, Purcell, and instruments contemporaneous to the period of the drama. Dolmetsch performed in a number of Poel's productions including that of Milton's Samson Agonistes (1900)

Embossingin printing, the process of pressing a moulded die form into a flat sheet of paper to create a design in relief.

The female die is sometimes heated to help recast the paper around the male die. Because it was more difficult to align paper over an irregular die, pins were often used for precise registration but they left small holes behind in the image. Paper can be embossed for affect without the need for ink and registration. Embossing was used on novelty postcards and greeting cards. Embossing is met also in leather, or as a moulding or carving in relief on the surface of a coin, of a medal, etc.

Emicthe neologisms 'emic' and 'etic', which were derived from an analogy with the terms 'phonemic' and 'phonetic', were coined by the linguistic anthropologist Kenneth Pike (1954). He suggests that there are two perspectives that can be employed in the study of a society's cultural system, just as there are two perspectives that can be used in the study of a language's sound system. In both cases, it is possible to take the point of view of an insider ('emic') or the point of view of an outsider ('etic'). As Pike defines it, the emic perspective focuses on the intrinsic cultural distinctions that are meaningful to the members of a given society while the etic perspective relies upon the extrinsic concepts and categories that have meaning for scientific observers

so-called 'sensitive' style of the mid eighteenth century, characterized by melodic directness and homophonic texture, the North German equivalent of Style Galant (1750-1780) and the romantic version of the Rococo style. The volkstumliche Lied, Singspiel and the mid- to late-eighteenth century aesthetic movement Sturm und Drang all rooted in Empfindsamkeit
In his Allgemeine Theorie der schönen Künste und der Ästhetik (1771-1774), Johann Georg Sulzer (1720-1779) argues that sensibility has both a psychological and a moral dimension: an emotion is a psychological experience, which can subsequently lead to a moral knowledge of good and evil. "Since the real job of the artist is to depict the emotions [Empfindungen] and that which stirs them as lively as possible, and both can have an important influence on the education of the soul, therefore it is natural that he should aim at stirring them. [...]. The artist, therefore, who takes his profession seriously and feels his powers, should consecrate himself to being the teacher and guide for his fellow citizens."
