What's the MPG about?

"The Music Producers Guild promotes and represents all individuals in the music production and recording professions. It is a professional organisation that embodies collective and individual creative contributions to the production and recording of all genres of music and media related activities.

As an independent and democratic organisation, the MPG membership includes producers, engineers, mixers, re-mixers, programmers, students and trainees, those involved in multimedia and any other individuals involved in the creative process. It is a non-discriminatory, representative body with an effective and transparent infra structure in line with other music industry bodies and seeks to set and maintain the highest standards and values of our profession.

Central to the MPG philosophy is the creation and maintenance of subsidiary Special Interest Groups as a 'melting pot' for ideas, to focus like minded individuals in generating constructive activities which offer support within and direction to the MPG as well as those outside the organisation."
