Abstract [en]

In the project Searching for Sophia in Music Production Education, amultidisciplinary team of Swedish researchers study various formal and informallearning processes connected to education in music production in higher education.This paper is part of that project. Previous research shows a variety of competencesthat are used and needed among musicians, music producers and other professionalsactive in the art of music production. Our interest has a background in the worldwideexport of music from the Nordic countries. Several of the Nordic internationalsuccessful songwriters, musicians and music producers have more of an informalbackground than a scholastic formal education. The term Sophia [wisdom] refers toancient Greek knowledge typology and is used to summarize the theoreticalframework of the project.In this paper, we focus on the Swedish record producer Denniz Pop [Dag Volle, 1963-1998]. Denniz Pop enjoyed substantial international success in the 1990´s, creatingthe Cheiron studios in Stockholm, recording and producing e.g. Ace of Base,Backstreet Boys, Michael Jackson, and many others. He was the mentor of songwriter& record producer Max Martin [Karl Martin Sandberg, b. 1971]. The paper ties inwith a planned biography on Denniz Pop, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of hisuntimely death in 1998. In the biography, we conduct five case studies: focusing oninterviews with Denniz Pop`s inner family; fellow record producers and closecolleagues; artists; music journalists; and musicologists.
