Productive failure in music production

Project: Research

Description

This project examined the concept of 'productive failure' in professional music production. By engaging with the professional environment, learners were able to develop better capabilities for the professional world of music production.

Key findings

'Productive failure' as a method of learning is particularly valuable to the creative industries, as here typified by music production. This is because the sector involves extensive failure and rejection as part of the creative production process, a proliferation of cultural intermediaries, and an oversupply of aspiring entrants.
