The Producers: Springtime For Hit-Lists

In five years, no one may remember what an iPod looked like. But the job of the producer has survived every paradigm shift the music industry ad technology has thrown at it. Their destination may be a playlist in the cloud, but hits are still hits, and the masters of the studio still use their ears and intuition to shape-shift them. Often celebrities in their own right, the best have learned to wield digital technologies while retaining the soul of the song. This panel features a who’s who of studio hit-makers who will talk about how their job has evolved and how the fundamentals have endured.
