EMAS logoThe Electroacoustic Music Association of Great Britain (EMAS) was founded in January 1979, with the aim of providing a national focus for creation, performance and coordinated research in the field of electroacoustic and computer music. By involving both individuals and commercial interests with a stake in such music, EMAS developed a wide public education programme, touring concerts, provision of courses in electronic, electro-acoustic and computer music as well as recording techniques, record production and publication of a periodical and musical scores.

EMAS later became Sonic Arts Network which was finally merged with other contemporary music organisations in 2008 to form Sound & Music.
