Resonant Thoughts: Richard James Burgess’s “The History Of Music Production” (2014)


“What makes random access important, in a creative setting, is being able to grab chunks or tiny fragments of music to copy, paste, cut, fix, tune, move, and modify. Writing a book or even an email is now, almost, unthinkable without being able to move, modify, and fix things. Manipulative power has become integral to our creative process.”

Richard James Burgess, The History of Music Production (2014), p. 136.
