Creative collaboration is put under the spotlight

Creative collaboration is put under the spotlight

09/02/2017

Music and media students came together this week for the College’s Music Expo, where they got the chance to get involved in a variety of interactive workshops, master classes and special guest workshops, offering a real insight into the industries they’re training in.

On day three of the Expo, Music students put on a fantastic show for fellow students in The Venue at ncn Clarendon, with bands performing a range of music styles, including: rock, pop and Latin. Media students ensured the production went without a hitch - organising everything from lighting and sound to filming and photography. The show was live streamed via YouTube, with one viewer tuning in all the way from Nigeria!

David Adeyemi, 20, studies FdA Film and TV Production: “I was the Producer of the TV show which was such a great experience; but a big responsibility and really challenging. A live TV show isn’t easy to manage; as you can never predict what’s going to happen next, but I’ve learnt so much. It was good fun collaborating with the music students; I think we worked really well as a team.”

Other highlights include performances by successful local bands: Pendulums Fall; Sarah Knight; As December Falls; and rap star Juga-Naut, a song writing workshop from Nottingham singer-songwriter Jake Burns, and the chance to learn to play in a 30-piece Samba band.

Andy Oakley, ncn Music Lecturer, said: “The event has far exceeded our expectations. The support we’ve had from industry has been amazing and the students have had so many different opportunities and experiences that will help towards, not only their studies, but also their future careers.”
