JIPM 2020: History, analysis and interpretation of music production processes
around the recording studio

Nowadays, the research of the processes of music production is still a novelty within musicology. Although in recent years a bibliographic corpus has been developed which allows us to establish an initial theoretical framework, we are still immersed in a methodological debate that seeks to agree on some parameters of analysis and the use of effective tools for the study of music production. The final result of a record production is achieved through different variables which range from the technology used to the personal and aesthetic preferences of the engineer and/or producer. The recording studio thus becomes an important stock of resources for the artistic expression and generates a space in which, from the collective experience, a technological mediation is produced which is determinant for the musical creation and interpretation.
