Abstract

This chapter initiates the discussion of post-production through an exploration of the ‘state of the art’ in both the practice and our theoretical understanding of audio processing, echoing the underlying pursuit the handbook stated in the introduction – that is, the bridging of dichotomies between the theoretical and the practical (the ‘how’ and the ‘why’) in/behind record production processes and outcomes. In some ways, this is also reflected in the tone and examples offered by the two authors, contributing both practice-based/phonographic illustrations, as well as surveys of relevant theorizations from other disciplines. In attempting to provide a theoretical map/ping between musical - sonic objectives, technological/processual actualization and pursued aesthetics (personal/stylistic sonic signatures in record production), we examine four domains of sonic characteristics, and ensuing tools and processes devised for their manipulation – namely ‘pitch’, ‘amplitude’, ‘spectrum and timbre’ and ‘time and space’.
