Affordances, agency, and music production

Document Thumbnail

This paper will consider recording studio practice from a pedagogical perspective. It particularly examines the areas of affordances and agency when considering approaches to recording music and possible developments between the analogue and digital eras. A study was undertaken in which three renowned music producers were interviewed. All of the producers involved are still active in the industry and have careers beginning in the 1960s and 1970s until the present day (2015). The subsequent interview data was subjected to an Interpretative Phenomenological (IPA) Analysis technique. It is anticipated that exploring studio practice from this perspective would share insights from both the analogue and digital era of sound recording. From this phenomenological understanding of recording music it is hoped important pedagogical implications can be presented from the study, and in addition an historical account of recording studio practice from this perspective can be captured.
