Electronic music uses digital technology and electronic instruments to create new sounds. It often includes devices like synthesizers and turntables.

One of the earliest electronic instruments was the Theremin, which used electromagnetic fields to create sounds at different pitches. It was invented in 1920 in Soviet Russia.

The genre of electronic music expanded massively in the 20th century. For example, in the 1970s it led to the emergence of hip-hop, new wave and synth-pop!
