Oct 26, 2022

Record producer, audio engineer and professor Dr. Susan Rogers' remarkable recording career included working as a staff engineer for Prince in his Purple Rain heyday, not to mention projects with David Byrne, Barenaked Ladies and Crosby, Stills & Nash. After two decades in the business, she shifted her focus to the science of music cognition, and she brings her extensive knowledge of all things audio to the new book This Is What It Sounds Like: What The Music You Love Says About You, digging into concepts including beat deafness, authenticity, musical visualization, Prince's insane charisma, turning down Lou Reed, music and identity, the outsider magic of The Shaggs and Snowball the dancing cockatoo.
