Andrew Scheps tops bill for multi-genre music conference

Crosstown Traffic Conference comes to Huddersfield 3 - 5 Sept

World-renowned producer/engineer/mixer Andrew Scheps (Metallica, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Jay Z and Adele) will top the list of keynote speakers at the Crosstown Traffic Conference 2018, coming to the University of Huddersfield next week (Monday 03 - Wednesday 05 September).

Also speaking is Lachlan Goold, aka Magoo, who has produced many big Australian artists.

Entitled 'Crosstown Traffic: Popular Music Theory and Practice’, the conference is organised by four organisations straddling the study of popular music, metal, electronic dance and record production. The idea is to bring together practitioners and researchers from various disciplines and professions to encourage interdisciplinary and collaborative work.

Other keynote speakers include Anne Danielsen, a scholar based at the University of Olso, known for editing Musical Rhythm in the Age of Digital Reproduction. Franco Fabbri is a musicologist, musician and broadcaster based at the University of Milan and Parma Conservatory, and is Visiting Professor at the University of Huddersfield.

Hosted  by the University of Huddersfield, this event combines the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM) UK & Ireland Biennial Conference, with the 13th Art of Record Production Conference (ARP), a conference of the International Society for Metal Music Studies (ISMMS), and features the additional participation of Dancecult, the Electronic Dance Music Culture Research Network. 

Registration is £70 per day and you can find the full programme here
