An advanced paper in practice-based studio production and research projects, including production for music performance, new media and recorded works.
Work in the recording studio as a producer is a particularly twenty-first century skill: one that is desirable and apt for many Music students, combining as it does expertise in recording technology and software, oral and written communication, and the ability to work as a creative liaison between composers/songwriters, performers, production teams, music venues, record labels, communities and other organisations and individuals.
