Dr. Susan Rogers

The Department of Music highlights their 2023-24 Walker Cultural Leaders Series by featuring the fascinating work of Dr. Susan Rogers, an educator, accomplished sound engineer and record producer. Dr. Rogers, professor in the Production and Engineering Department at Berklee College of Music (Boston, MA), joins us for a series of talks on the art of music-making and the science of listening to music. Music
cognition forms the basis of her recent book This Is What It Sounds Like: What the Music You Love Says About You (co-authored with Ogi Ogas), which examines why individuals are attracted to the types of music they listen to. Prior to her academic career, Dr. Rogers worked as a sound engineer and record producer for musicians such as Prince, David Byrne, and Barenaked Ladies.

This Walker Cultural Leaders Series is presented in partnership with the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts,
Faculty of Mathematics and Science, Brock University, and FirstOntario Performing Arts Centre.
