In this talk, Simon Zagorski-Thomas will use a range of examples to explore how theoretical knowledge can help to bridge the divide between the vocational and the traditionally academic. Drawing on recordings by artists including The Kings of Leon, Marvin Gaye and Britney Spears, he will examine how students, professionals and researchers can better understand the mechanics of record production by exploring the guiding principles behind professional techniques. Drawing in particular on his work on recordings as sonic cartoons, he will utilise a theoretical framework based on the ecological approach to perception and embodied cognition to explore how recordings work.
