Wherever possible we seek to make the connection between the academic world of research and pedagogy and the industry world of creative practice and commerce, and to examine how they can help each other and promote mutual understanding.

We welcome proposals from any higher education institution, anywhere in the world, wishing to host the conference. 

The Journal on the Art of Record Production

The Journal on the Art of Record Production (JARP) is an international double-blind peer reviewed open access online journal promoting the interdisciplinary study of music production. The term ‘record production’ is to be interpreted in the broadest sense as the production of recorded music. 

JARP was founded in 2006 by Simon Zagorski-Thomas and Katia Isakoff. JARP has published eleven open access electronic issues, and a twelfth in book form.  Interviews with GRAMMY nominated and award winning musicians and record producers can be found on our website and published in our books.

Editors-in-Chief: Katia Isakoff (Founding Editor) and Richard James Burgess MBE
