From garage to greatness: Reflections on home-studio production experience

Brown, Hugh & Graham, Philip W. (2007) From garage to greatness: Reflections on home-studio production experience. In Art of Record Production Annual Conference, 10-11 December 2007, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Qld. (Unpublished)


This paper reports on two experiences of producing music albums in a home-studio setting from two vastly different production backgrounds. It explores common themes that emerge from these contrasting experiences and reflects on the literature – academic, industry and popular – that surrounds home-production, finding that in many ways the reality does not match the hype.

This autoethnographic research has implications for anyone involved in the future of recorded music: musicians, music educators and institutions who seek to encourage home production as the future for musical careers, their students, and the industry that services their needs.
