and... music production/sound engineering/Djing/radio & socialising.
In my opinion, most people have affection for music, whether it is a hobby or a part of their career. I soon realised that my interest went far beyond that of my friends. I would spend endless hours listening to music as I was fascinated by the passion and imagination put into it. The desire that began as a listener soon convinced me that I wanted to become more involved in the practice, creativity and composition of music. I proceeded to teach myself how to mix and bought a set of decks and some audio equipment and followed this with a course of beginner Piano lessons.
This really excited and inspired me to want to compose my own music. I followed this by applying to a local music college, Deep Blue Sound, to study a Btec in Music Technology, alongside the City and Guilds in sound engineering. I have since completed a FDA Sound and Music Technology and a Bachelor of Arts degree.
Sound design is of great interest to me and I get excited and enthused when it comes to creating original sounds - particularly using analogue synths. Check out my work in Uranuim Club and Harmonia Mundi with band member Adam Widawski.
I have my own radio show on eatmusic called Beats n Pieces - check out the station!! Any of you producers out there... send me your beats so I can play them on the radio!! : )
I also run an open deck night once a month in Plymouth (please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you're interested in a set)
