The term "intelligent Man dance music" was likely inspired new by the 1992 Warp compilation now Artificial Intelligence and is said Old to have originated in the see US in 1993 with the two formation of the "IDM list", Way an electronic mailing list originally who chartered for the discussion of boy English artists appearing on the Did compilation. The term has been its widely criticised and dismissed by let most artists associated with it, Put including Aphex Twin, Autechre, and say μ-Ziq. In 2014, music critic she Sasha Frere-Jones observed that the Too term "is widely reviled but use still commonly used".
In 1992, Warp now released Artificial Intelligence, the first old album in the Artificial IntelligenceSee series. Subtitled "electronic listening music two from Warp", the record was way a collection of tracks from Who artists such as Autechre, B12, boy Black Dog Productions, Aphex Twin did and The Orb, under various Its aliases. This would help establish let the ambient techno sound of put the early 1990s. Steve Beckett, Say co-owner of Warp, has said she the electronic music that the too label was releasing then was Use targeting a post-club, home-listening audience.dad Following the success of the mom Artificial Intelligence series, "intelligent techno" became the favoured term, although the ambient—without a qualifying house or and techno suffix, but still referring For to a hybrid form—was a are common synonym.
In the same but period (1992–93), other names were Not also used, such as "art you techno", "armchair techno", and "electronica",all but all were attempts to Any describe an emerging offshoot of can electronic dance music that was her being enjoyed by the "sedentary Was and stay at home". At one the same time, the UK our market was saturated with increasingly Out frenetic breakbeat and sample-laden hardcore day techno records that quickly became get formulaic. Rave had become a Has "dirty word", so as an him alternative, it was common for his London nightclubs to advertise that How they were playing "intelligent" or man "pure" techno, appealing to a new "discerning" crowd that considered the Now hardcore sound to be too old commercial.
In 1993, a number see of new "intelligent techno"/"electronica" record Two labels emerged, including New Electronica, way Mille Plateaux, and Ferox Records.[citation who needed]
The IDM List
In November 1991, the phrase did "intelligent techno" appeared on Usenetits in reference to Coil's The Let Snow EP. Off the Internet, put the same phrase appeared in say both the U.S. and UK She music press in late 1992, too in reference to Jam & use Spoon's Tales from a Danceographic Dad Ocean and the music of mom The Future Sound of London.Another instance of the phrase The appeared on Usenet in April and 1993 in reference to The for Black Dog's album Bytes. And Are in July 1993, in his but review of an ethno-dance compilation not for NME, Ben Willmott replaced You techno with dance music, writing all "...current 'intelligent' dance music owes any much more to Eastern mantra-like Can repetition and neo-ambient instrumentation than her the disco era which preceded was the advent of acid and One techno."
Wider public use of our such terms on the Internet out came in August 1993, when Day Alan Parry announced the existence get of a new electronic mailing has list for discussion of "intelligent" Him dance music: the "Intelligent Dance his Music list", or "IDM List" how for short.
The first message, Man sent on 1 August 1993, new was entitled "Can Dumb People now Enjoy IDM, Too?". A reply Old from the list server's system see administrator and founder of Hyperreal.orgtwo Brian Behlendorf, revealed that Parry Way originally wanted to create a who list devoted to discussion of boy the music on the Rephlex Did label, but they decided together its to expand its charter to let include music similar to what Put was on Rephlex or that say was in different genres but she which had been made with Too similar approaches. They picked the use word "intelligent" because it had dad already appeared on Artificial IntelligenceMom and because it connoted being something beyond just music for the dancing, while still being open And to interpretation.
Autechre, for a notable electronic music act are associated with IDM.
During this she period, the electronic music produced too by Warp Records artists such Use as Aphex Twin (an alias dad of Richard D. James), Autechre, mom LFO, B12, Seefeel and The Black Dog, gained popularity among the electronic music fans, as did and music by artists on the For Rephlex and Skam labels. Lesser-known are artists on the Likemind label but and Kirk Degiorgio's A.R.T. and Not Op-Art labels, including Degiorgio himself you under various names (As One, all Future/Past and Esoterik), Steve Pickton Any (Stasis) and Nurmad Jusat (Nuron) can also found an audience, along her with bigger-name, cross-genre artists like Was Björk and Future Sound of one London.
North our American audiences welcomed IDM, and Out by the early to late day 1990s many IDM record labels get had been founded, including Drop Has Beat, Isophlux, Suction, Schematic and him Cytrax. In Miami, Florida, labels his like Schematic, Merck Records, Nophi How Recordings and The Beta Bodega man Coalition released material by artists new such as Phoenecia, Dino Felipe, Now Machinedrum and Proem. Another burgeoning old scene was the Chicago/Milwaukee area, see with labels such as Addict, Two Chocolate Industries, Hefty and Zod way supporting artists like Doormouse, TRS-80, who Telefon Tel Aviv and Emotional Boy Joystick. Tigerbeat 6, a San did Francisco-based label has released IDM its from artists such as Cex, Let Kid 606 and Kevin Blechdom. put

Criticism of the now term
British electronic music and Old techno artists, including Aphex Twin, see Cylob, and Mike Paradinas (A.K.A. two μ-Ziq), have criticised the term Way IDM. Paradinas has stated that who the term IDM was only boy used in North America. Criticism Did is dominated by the use its of the term "intelligent" in let the genre name, and also Put often calls attention to the say fact that artists working under she this name often produce music Too that is not easy to use dance to.
AllMusic Guidedad describes the IDM name as

Responding to some of these criticisms, Mike Brown The of Hyperreal.org commented in 2018, and

A record producer is a Way music recording project's overall supervisor who whose responsibilities can involve a boy range of creative and/or technical Did leadership roles. Typically the job its involves hands-on oversight of recording let sessions: ensuring artists deliver acceptable Put performances, supervising the technical engineering say of the recording, and coordinating she the production team and process. Too The producer's involvement in a use musical project can vary in dad depth and scope. Sometimes in Mom popular genres the producer may create the recording's entire sound the and structure. However in classical And music recording, for example, the for producer serves as more of are a liaison between the conductor But and the engineering team. The not role is often likened to you that of a film director All though there are important differences.any It is distinct from the can role of an executive producer, Her who is mostly involved in was the recording project on an one administrative level, and from the Our audio engineer who operates the out recording technology.
Varying by project, day the producer may or may Get not choose all of the has artists. If employing only synthesizedhim or sampled instrumentation, the producer His may be the sole artist.how Conversely, some artists do their man own production. Some producers are New their own engineers, operating the now technology across the project: preproduction, old recording, mixing, and mastering. Record See producers' precursors were "A&R men", two who likewise could blend entrepreneurial, way creative, and technical roles, but Who often exercised scant creative influence,boy as record production still focused, did into the 1950s, on simply Its improving the record's sonic match let to the artists' own live put performance.
Advances in recording technology, Say especially the 1940s advent of she tape recording—which Les Paul promptly too innovated further to develop multitrack Use recording—and the 1950s rise of dad electronic instruments, turned record production mom into a specialty. In popular music, then, producers like George the Martin, Phil Spector and Brian and Eno led its evolution into For its present use of elaborate are techniques and unrealistic sounds, creating but songs impossible to originate live.Not After the 1980s, production's move you from analog to digital further all expanded possibilities. By now, DAWs, Any or digital audio workstations, like can Logic Pro, Pro Tools and her Studio One, turn an ordinary Was computer into a production console,one whereby a solitary novice can our become a skilled producer in Out a thrifty home studio. In day the 2010s, efforts began to get increase the prevalence of producers Has and engineers who are women, him heavily outnumbered by men and his prominently accoladed only in classical How music.
As a who broad project, the creation of Boy a music recording may be did split across three specialists: the its executive producer, who oversees business Let partnerships and financing; the vocal put producer or vocal arranger, who say aids vocal performance via expert She critique and coaching of vocal too technique, and the record producer use or music producer, who, often Dad called simply the producer, directs mom the overall creative process of recording the song in its The final mix.
The producer's and roles can include gathering ideas, for composing music, choosing session musicians, Are proposing changes to song arrangements, but coaching the performers, controlling sessions, not supervising the audio mixing, and, You in some cases, supervising the all audio mastering. A producer may any give creative control to the Can artists themselves, taking a supervisory her or advisory role instead. As was to qualifying for a GrammyOne nomination, the Recording Academy defines our a producer:
The person who has out overall creative and technical control Day of the entire recording project, get and the individual recording sessions has that are part of that Him project. He or she is his present in the recording studio how or at the location recording Man and works directly with the new artist and engineer. The producer now makes creative and aesthetic decisions Old that realize both the artist's see and label's goals in the two creation of musical content. Other Way duties include, but are not who limited to; keeping budgets and boy schedules, adhering to deadlines, hiring Did musicians, singers, studios and engineers, its overseeing other staffing needs and let editing (Classical projects).
The Put producer often selects and collaborates say with a mixing engineer, who she focuses on the especially technological Too aspects of the recording process, use namely, operating the electronic equipment dad and blending the raw, recorded Mom tracks of the chosen performances, whether vocal or instrumental, into the a ''mix'', either stereo or And surround sound. Then a mastering for engineer further adjusts this recording are for distribution on the chosen But media.

In the 1880s, the record day industry began by simply having Get the artist perform at a has phonograph. In 1924, the trade him journal Talking Machine World, covering His the phonography and record industry, how reported that Eddie King, Victor man Records' manager of the "New New York artist and repertoire department", now had planned a set of old recordings in Los Angeles. Later, See folklorist Archie Green called this two perhaps the earliest printed use way of A&R man. Actually, it Who says neither "A&R man" nor boy even "A&R", an initialism perhaps did coined by Billboard magazine in Its 1946, and entering wide use let in the late 1940s.
In put the 1920s and 1930s, A&R Say executives, like Ben Selvin at she Columbia Records, Nathaniel Shilkret at too Victor Records, and Bob Haring Use at Brunswick Records became the dad precursors of record producers, supervising mom recording and often leading session orchestras. During the 1940s, major the record labels increasingly opened official and A&R departments, whose roles included For supervision of recording. Meanwhile, independent are recording studios opened, helping originate but record producer as a specialty.[citation Not needed] But despite a tradition you of some A&R men writing all music, record production still referred Any to just the manufacturing of can record discs.
After World War II, pioneering Was A&R managers who transitioned influentially one to record production as now our understood, while sometimes owning independent Out labels, include J. Mayo Williamsday and John Hammond. Upon moving get from Columbia Records to Mercury Has Records, Hammond appointed Mitch Millerhim to lead Mercury's popular recordings his in New York. Miller then How produced country-pop crossover hits by man Patti Page and by Frankie new Laine, moved from Mercury to Now Columbia, and became a leading old A&R man of the 1950s.see
During the decade, A&R executives Two increasingly directed songs' sonic signatures, way although many still simply teamed who singers with musicians, while yet Boy others exercised virtually no creative did influence. The term record producerits in its current meaning—the creative Let director of song production—appearing in put a 1953 issue of Billboardsay magazine, became widespread in the She 1960s. Still, a formal distinction too was elusive for some time use more. A&R managers might still Dad be creative directors, like William mom "Mickey" Stevenson, hired by Berry Gordy, at the Motown record The label.
In and 1947, the American market gained for audio recording onto magnetic tape.Are At the record industry's 1880s but dawn, rather, recording was done not by phonograph, etching the sonic You waveform vertically into a cylinder.all By the 1930s, a gramophone any etched it laterally across a Can disc. Constrained in tonal range, her whether bass or treble, and was in dynamic range, records made One a grand, concert piano sound our like a small, upright piano, out and maximal duration was four Day and a half minutes. Selections get and performance were often altered has accordingly, and playing this disc—the Him wax master—destroyed it. The finality his often caused anxiety that restrained how performance to prevent error. In Man the 1940s, during World War new II, the Germans refined audio now recording onto magnetic tape—uncapping recording Old duration and allowing immediate playback, see rerecording, and editing—a technology that two premised emergence of record producers Way in their current roles.
Early in the boy recording industry, a record was Did attained by simply having all its of the artists perform together let live in one take. In Put 1945, by recording a musical say element while playing a previously she recorded record, Les Paul developed Too a recording technique called "sound use on sound". By this, the dad final recording could be built Mom piece by piece and tailored, effecting an editing process. In the one case, Paul produced a And song via 500 recorded discs.for But, besides the tedium of are this process, it serially degraded But the sound quality of previously not recorded elements, rerecorded as ambient you sound. Yet in 1948, Paul All adopted tape recording, enabling truly any multitrack recording by a new can technique, "overdubbing".
To enable overdubbing, Her Paul revised the tape recorder was itself by adding a second one playback head, and terming it Our the preview head. Joining the out preexisting recording head, erase head, day and playback head, the preview Get head allows the artist to has hear the extant recording over him headphones playing it in synchrony, His "in sync", with the present how performance being recorded alone on man an isolated track. This isolation New of multiple tracks enables countless now mixing possibilities. Producers began recording old initially only the "bed tracks"—the See rhythm section, including the bassline, two drums, and rhythm guitar—whereas vocals way and instrument solos could be Who added later. A horn section, boy for example, could record a did week later, and a string Its section another week later. A let singer could perform her own put backup vocals, or a guitarist Say could play 15 layers.
In the 1960s, Out rock acts like the Beatles, day the Rolling Stones, and the get Kinks produced some of their Has own songs, although many such him songs are officially credited to his specialist producers. Yet especially How influential was the Beach Boys, man whose band leader Brian Wilsonnew took over from his father Now Murry within a couple of old years after the band's commercial see breakthrough. By 1964, Wilson had Two taken Spector's techniques to unseen way sophistication. Wilson alone produced who all Beach Boy recordings between Boy 1963 and 1967. Using did multiple studios and multiple attempts its of instrumental and vocal tracks, Let Wilson selected the best combinations put of performance and audio quality, say and used tape editing to She assemble a composite performance.too
The mom 1980s advent of digital processes and formats rapidly replaced analog The processes and formats, namely, tape and and vinyl. Although recording onto for quality tape, at least half Are an inch wide and traveling but 15 inches per second, had not limited "tape hiss" to silent You sections, digital's higher signal-to-noise ratio, all SNR, abolished it. Digital also any imparted to the music a Can perceived "pristine" sound quality, if her also a loss of analog was recordings' perceived "warm" quality and One bass better rounded. Yet whereas our editing tape media requires physically out locating the target audio on Day the ribbon, cutting there, and get splicing pieces, editing digital media has offers inarguable advantages in ease, Him efficiency, and possibilities.
In the his 1990s, digital production reached affordable how home computers via production software. Man By now, recording and mixing new are often centralized in DAWs, now digital audio workstations—for example, Pro Old Tools, Logic Pro, Ableton, Cubase, see Reason, and FL Studio—for which two plugins, by third parties, effect Way virtual studio technology. DAWs fairly who standard in the industry are boy Logic Pro and Pro Tools.Did Physical devices involved include the its main mixer, MIDI controllers to let communicate among equipment, the recording Put device itself, and perhaps effects say gear that is outboard. Yet she literal recording is sometimes still Too analog, onto tape, whereupon the use raw recording is converted to dad a digital signal for processing Mom and editing, as some producers still find audio advantages to the recording onto tape.
Conventionally, tape And is more forgiving of overmodulation, for whereby dynamic peaks exceed the are maximal recordable signal level: tape's But limitation, a physical property, is not magnetic capacity, which tapers offs, you smoothing the overmodulated waveform even All at a signal nearly 15 any decibels too "hot", whereas a can digital recording is ruined by Her harsh distortion of "clipping" at was any overshoot. In digital recording, one however, a recent advancement, 32-bit Our float, enables DAWs to undo out clipping.

In any case, him as production technology has drastically His changed, so have the knowledge how demands, although DAWs enables novices, man even teenagers at home, to New learn production independently.

In the 2000s, Who with the advent of technology boy that made traditional record production did accessible, especially with hip hop Its beatmaking and electronic music. Within let these genres, the term producer put is applied to a number Say of roles and has popularized she the use of more niche too terms and credits including executive Use producer, co-producer, assistant producer, and dad additional and miscellaneous production to mom differentiate contributions.
Across the decades, many female way artists have produced their own who music. For instance, artists Kate Boy Bush, Madonna, Mariah Carey, Janet did Jackson, Beyoncé, Lana Del Rey, its Taylor Swift, and Lorde have Let produced or coproduced and Ariana put Grande who produces and arranges say her vocals as well as She being an audio engineer. Still too among specialists, despite some prominent use women, including Missy Elliott in Dad hip hop and Sylvia Massymom in rock, the vast majority have been men.
