Electronic Metronomes: They Do Much More than Click
The biggest advantage is its potentially greater accuracy
Times have changed since the early 1960s, when Transylvanian composer György Ligeti staged peformances of his “Poème Symphonique,” an avant-garde piece written for 100 metronomes that slowly wound down and stopped. Although you can still find these classic versions with their swinging pendulums and resounding “tock, tock,” the old wind-ups are being seriously challenged in music stores by new electronic units that do much more than click.
