The Culture and Technology of Recording Studios in America, 1877-1977

CHASING SOUND explores the development of studio recording in America during the first century of recorded sound. This is the first history of the recording industry from the perspective of the technical and creative teams--engineers, musicians, music arrangers, record producers--who made the records that made the industry, and the first to trace the evolution of the recording engineering profession and its critical role in the growth of the music industry. It offers a fresh perspective on the interaction of technological and cultural forces in one of the most significant art forms of the twentieth century, showing how technological solutions to problems of an artistic nature bring both creative possibilities and artistic trade-offs.
