University prepared me for my career by helping me refine my skills and discover which path within digital music I wanted to take.
My favourite Solent memory was in the second year, performing with Adam Long and Tom Freeth for the live performance unit. It helped solidify a friendship that has continued after Solent.
The visual media units on the BA (Hons) Digital Music course made me realise that I enjoy creating music for films. This has led to freelance opportunities which I am continuing to work on.
My career highlight so far was working with a large UK company to create music for their online media campaign.
I am now creating music for digital media in a freelance environment. From a home studio, my typical day consists of working to a deadline. This means that I am able to choose my own working hours which, although good, can lead to some late nights!
There are points in music where you sit in front of a blank screen or a piece of music that you don’t like and want to tear your hair out. Being able to work through these moments is the key to creating the work that will help you progress in this industry.
