dc.description.abstract There is no denying the signature sound and feel of the music that came out of Motown and "Hitsville U.S.A". This distinctive and classic sound came from a combination of analog engineering techniques, talented musicians, and occasionally, pure coincidence. Since then, audio production has moved into the digital world, leaving analog tape techniques in the past. Production techniques are not the only musical aspect that has changed over time; song structure and chord progressions in modern music vary greatly in comparison to the more simple songs of the Motown era. For this project, I looked into Motown recording, mixing, and mastering techniques. I rewrote parts for five modern songs in order to emphasize the vintage feel, and then I applied the researched Motown recording techniques during production. Included is a disc of my chosen five modern songs with a Motown twist. en_US
