Description

Following Susan Rogers’s distinguished lecture on November 21st, this workshop brings together researchers who study the creative process of music making and recording (including orchestration and sound design) from the perceptive of psychoacoustics and music psychology, and musicians who draw inspiration and conceptual tools from these fields to achieve an in-depth and informed understanding of their own creative process and technics. 

Our guest speaker, Susan Rogers, will offer practical tips for record producers and engineers from the perspective of psychoacoustics, neuroaesthetics, and music perception research. Popular music recordings will be analyzed in terms of performance gestures, recording/mix techniques and arrangement choices, to consider how the artistry of record making engages listeners.
