The Art of Record Production is a non-profit making organisation that frequently holds conferences in Music Technology and the area of Record Production.
Since 2005, the organisation has sought to combine a mix of academics and leading industry figures at its annual event.

Other speakers at this year's conference include Paul Miller (DJ Spooky), Phil Harding (The Clash, PWL, Kylie) and Steve Parker (The Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin).
Harvey Roberts, Audio-Technica senior UK marketing manager said, "We're delighted to lend our support to this year's Art of Record Production Conference."
"With Audio-Technica microphones and headphones in use by top producers around the world, our involvement with the event is a perfect fit with the creative professionals who will be visiting and speaking at the conference."Posted on 3 Nov 2010 16:50 to category : Music News
