Collaboration takes many forms in contemporary music production. Building effective professional relationships can be the secret to success in modern music production, even in a world where autonomous working is more possible than ever. For example, we see engineers collaborate and co-produce with artists, electronic producers working remotely with session musicians, and self-producing artists nurturing their product through the recording mixing and mastering chain. In this workshop we explore the contemporary practices of collaboration in music production, particularly reflecting on modern technologies and tools that have enabled new frameworks for communication and co-working. We will look at methods of the past that have perhaps been lost owing to new technologies and working methods, and evaluate the education needs to enable new artists and producers to be successful in their careers.
