Clever staff part 1

jmeredith : 15/09/2014

We are very lucky to have staff who are all active in the industry. We don’t just stand in Mac suite, recording studios and practice rooms banging on about the music industry.

Mark Towers is one of the UK’s only active Ableton Trainers: uber-geek, and runs our FdSc Creative Sound technology Foundation Degree . He teaches across all of our Music tech course, too.

Last weekend, he was asked to demo a device he made at the prestigeous Music Tech Festival in London. It’s what’s called a ‘Generative Sequencer’: if that doesn’t mean much, but you like watching coloured lights bounce around and want to actually know what a Generative Sequencer is, then watch this ace demo video he put together, here: 


Aren’t our students lucky, eh?

After the success of the last couple of years’ Pop Up recording studio sessions at Strawberry Fields and Summer Sundae, we were thrilled to be part of Simon Says at De Montfort Hall in Leicester.

We took over a bit of the Garden Suite and decked it out in astroturf (for outdoor vibes, man) and recorded around 20 acts over the weekend in 30 minute slots, all live.

We had students from our Level 3 and Foundation Degree courses co-engineering , and we captured some real moments.

We were lucky enough to be able to use the grand piano that was there… we hadn’t planned for this, but we did a good job capturing it on a few tracks.

So, here it is
