'A master class in understanding the use of production technology as an arena of musical practice.
In this fascinating and highly accessible account, Thomas Brett proves his skills not just as a music maker, but also as a critical thinker on the subject of music production as a cultural space. He experiments and samples widely. He blends. He makes forays into different disciplines his own, creating an ongoing series of metaphors that repeatedly deliver insights into music production as a field. More than simply offering a masterful introduction to production technology, Brett teaches us to consider its sociological context and cultural resonances. His notion of the producer-fan helps us rethink the out-dated dichotomy that artificially separates fans from music makers, when we know those roles can and do overlap.
You could not ask for a better guide on your quest to fully understand the craft.'
Mark Duffet, Senior Lecturer in Media and Cultural Studies, University of Chester, author of Understanding Fandom
