Arr. & Cond

Recommended Posts

Having said that I still find it hard to understand how all the different roles in a recording studio interact with each other.


e.g. If a producer and an arranger disagreed over something who would take precedence.


How big would a group of musicians need to be before you needed a conductor.


I remember reading in Raynoma Gordy's biography that she was a trained musician and could write chord charts. Is that a job that would normally be done by an arranger? Presumably a good few musicians just play by ear and wouldn't even be able to read a chord chart anyway.


That's without the musicians/group members themselves just starting with an original riff and jamming around until they come up with a semi-finished product.


You can tell I've never been in a recording studio! Sometimes I think that with all these complexities and all the artistic temperaments bouncing around it's a miracle that so many brilliant records have ever seen the light of day.
