Fr. 11.9. 14:30h Jesper Andersen: (Royal Danish Academy of Music): 
        Technology and Aesthetics in the Music Production "Krucha Blondynka"

An in-depth explanation and the technical and artistic elements of a specific music production are given. There will be a focus on the aesthetic choices made and how these choices affect the technical solutions. The presentation will be based on the Grammy-nominated (best producer) recording of "Krucha Blondynka" from 2010 by the Polish artist Czeslaw Spiewa. Here is a link to the song, which I suggest that all participants hear before the presentation:
