While technology has democratized music creation, the abundance of recording formats and the rate at which technology evolves present a dizzying array of choices to the artist. Additionally, many artists are working outside the music industry pipeline, reaching their audience directly via online portals. In effect, they are their own curators, preserving their artistic output.
The Producers and Engineers Wing of the Recording Academy recently revised their Recommendations for Delivery of Recorded Music Projects and released Recommendations for High-Resolution music production. They have also been a leader in the development of the DDEX recording metadata standard called RIN (Recording Information Notification). This panel will discuss technical best practices and the many challenges artists and producers face when creating and archiving music using modern technology.
