The History of Music and it’s Production:
Music history is broad and diverse. It could deal with the study of the history of any type or genre of music or any other aspect of music. But that will not be our focus in this text. We will focus more on the producers of music. A music or record producer is in charge of the recording of sound of a singer’s music. This could be just a song or an entire album, short term or on a long term contract. The roles of a producer is not static and depends on the understanding between the producer and the artists. During this time, the music producer may he gathering music ideas for the project, collaborate with the artist to select cover tunes, work to help improve the quality of the artist’s songs among other responsibilities.
All producers are not the same and their level of involvement in the creation of a song or music varies producer to producer. But it is essential to note that all music producers are in the business to oversee all aspects of the creation of a song or album.
A music producer can be likened to a movie director, their ability to make decisions on the spot within split seconds must be high, and the vision of the final song must not be lost in the process of the production of the music. This vision must be well conveyed to everyone involved in the creation of the song – the singer, artists, musicians, or audio manager, whatever you choose to call them, whoever they are.
The music producer must be able to inspire trust and confidence in the individual abilities of his/her team. He must be able to get to best out of his/her team. For a music producer, focus is key, he or she must focus on the happenings real-time as each track is being laid down. He prepares for everything necessary for the success of producing the songs or album. This includes, booking sessions upfront, backup singers, and the likes for additional studio sessions as needed. This requires great communication skills as well as an excellent understanding of logistics and budgets.
