Book Description

Coproduction in the Recording Studio details how recording studio environments affect performance in the vocal booth.

Drawing on interviews with professional session singers, this book considers sociocultural and sociotechnical theory, the modern home studio space, as well as isolation and self-recording in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This is cutting-edge reading for advanced undergraduates, scholars and professionals working in the disciplines of recording studio production, vocal performance, audio engineering and music technology.
