And That Says What? Prince, Rogers, Nelson and Self-Expression (1983-1987)
Presented by Susan Rogers, Associate Professor of Music Production and Engineering
Prince was one of the most prolific recording artists of the 20th century, releasing an astonishing body of work during his peak in the 1980s. Yet, with his passing in 2016, he left behind a trove of unreleased songs. What differentiates released from unreleased material, and how is an artist’s public image shaped by these choices? In this session, Susan Rogers, who was Prince’s recording engineer from 1983 to 1987, will offer insight into his artistic decision-making process and the question of public versus private identity. This session will compare album cuts with B-sides and unreleased material, suggesting that lyric content may have been the primary factor influencing the release of Prince’s music.
This event is open to faculty, chairs and deans. Lunch will be provided.
