Technology and Music Production in Different Genres: Key Issues for a Significant Music Education
Keywords:Sound Technology, Music Recording, Urban Pop Music, Music Education, Music Styles, Music Genres
This research stems from the assumption that knowing how sound technology works, as well as its features and limitations, can help us better understand the mainstream music styles and genres of the last decades. Consequently, the evolution of music recording is explored through a grounded analysis based on both published documents and on interviews with currently active music producers who are specialists in urban pop music, with the aim to collect enough data to support the need to increase the presence of sound technology in the teaching plans of Compulsory Secondary Education. After the data analysis, several didactic proposals are presented involving the introduction of these technologies in secondary education. Thus, the aim is to update formal music education for teenagers and facilitate their informed and critical point of view so they can apply it to their own music consumption.
