Rankin Scholars in Residence Series
Start Date: 11/9/2022Start Time: 5:00 PM
End Date: 11/9/2022End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description
Hosted by our Music Industry Program, this talk by Rankin Scholar-In-Residence, Dr. Paul Thompson, explores the systems model of creativity as it applies to the production of a popular music recording inside the recording studio. By drawing on a particular example during Michael Jackson’s Off the Wall (1979), the dynamic interaction of the system’s symbiotic factors of domain, field and agent are shown in operation at different interdependent scales whilst engineer Bruce Swedien engineers Jackson’s vocal performance. Following the talk will be a roundtable discussion with fellow Rankin Scholar-In-Residence, Kirk McNally, and Drexel Professor Toby Seay.
The Rankin Scholar-in-Residence Series, named in honor of former Dean Marjorie Rankin and established through the continuing donations of her friends and colleagues, seeks to bring noted individuals to campus who excel in the multidisciplinary education championed by the Antoinette Westphal College of Media Arts & Design. The goal of the Series is to inspire students, stimulate research, invigorate professional networks, and aid in the continuing development of the Drexel community.
