Description :
In this paper the AA. focus on how music producers and recording engineers in studios in London perform emotional labour as part of the performative engineering of this musical creativity and performance. Firstly, they consider how producers and engineers work to create the right ‘vibe’ within the studio space by outlining the importance of the development of trust, drawing a distinction between emotive trust and capacity trust and tolerance of client behaviour, and in particular of alcohol consumption and substance abuse. They conclude by arguing that recording studios are emotional spaces in which producers and engineers regulate their own emotions by way of managing the emotions of musicians and recording artists as they perform.
