A unique book that takes a sideways glance at the recording industry to give youthe definitive guide to being a producer. Rather than yet another technical guide concerning how to correctly apply the right reverbs and how to compress a kick drum, Burgess examines the role of the producer within the demands of the modern commercial music industry, and discusses what it takes for you to be taken seriously in this notoriously competitive career. Chapters are dedicated to topics as pragmatic and anecdotal as: What kind of producer do you want to be? · How do you get started? · How do you deal with the artist, the management and the record company? · Lawyers · Who takes care of the paperwork? · What are the timeless ingredients of a hit record?
