ABSTRACT 

During the last two decades, many Swedish songwriters and music producers have been internationally successful. At the same time, more and more students in Swedish higher education have studied music production and other courses with music in combination with design and new media technology. In this research project Searching for Sophia in music production we study how various aspects, including the development of the music and media industry as well as individual initiatives, have contributed to the growing Swedish export of music. The term Sophia refers to ancient Greek knowledge typology and is used to summarize the theoretical framework of the project. Sophia is understood as wisdom, or sagacity, and can be described as the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding and reason. Previous research clearly shows a variety of competences that are used and needed among musicians, music producers and others active in the art of music production.  Leadership is a very important aspect of music production and that's why we explore what we can learn from Denniz PoP's (1963-1998) leadership when he collaborated with his closest colleagues, including multiple award-winning songwriter/producer Max Martin.  The empirical source material includes interviews as well as radio and television programs, literature and an extensive inventory of Swedish music industry and consumer magazines. The results include a 7-step model for music production but also indicate that Denniz PoP's true expertise was his ability to make others in a team grow and perform well. And what best characterizes that form of expert knowledge can certainly be described in many ways. Core characteristics appear to be thoughtfulness combined with both creative ability and perseverance as well as a sense of order and discipline, aspects that may be very challenging to fully implement as learning outcomes in music production education.
