Lethbridge Lament: Exploring musical genres through experimental learning
Studio residencies and live events with visiting artists provide post-secondary audio educators with opportunities to involve an entire program in learning engineering and production practices, sociocultural aspects of music creation, and research methods. A Master of Arts student conducted a case study to examine the creative processes of The Sweet Boys with video artist Nicole Cobb. Her analyses of an interview with the band, observation notes from recording sessions, and participation in pedagogical assignments underline how popular music subgenres are connected to sociology, musicology, and audio production techniques. We discuss how these pedagogical approaches facilitate experiential, situated, and integrated learning of the communication, inter-personal, and critical thinking skills required to challenge the culture of the commercial recording studio.
