This thesis examines live musicianship in terms of balancing audience expectations, perceptions of skill and the use of new technology in live performance with the aesthetic, artistic and sonic influences of the recording process.
Developments in recording studio technology and techniques, live sound reinforcement and approaches to performance are examined from audience and artist perspectives, as a means of evaluating the current role and future development of musicianship in popular music.
Complementing the research, a range of demonstrations will explore live performance by employing techniques and approaches to live musicianship discussed in the research.
