I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some guides or good books I can read through that'll help me understand the science of sound/electronic music. My knowledge of the subject at the moment doesn't extend much further than sound being vibration of particles that travels in waves, or something along those lines. I'd like to go a lot deeper with that though, to find out how complex music travels through the air, how different speakers produce that sound, how different audio formats capture and play those sounds, and how they're created digitally in the first place.

I'd like to be able to play around with music creation software in the future, but this seems like the right first step.

The value of books notwithstanding, just becoming a member of HA has done a great deal for my understanding of audio theory, combined with the often HA-inspired trips to wikipedia, and playing around in software like Audacity.
