A fantastic collaboration by a group of music technology students at Newbury College has resulted in ‘Snow’ this summer as their debut single, of the same name, hits Spotify. The students, who have completed their Extended Diploma, have been working in the college recording studio to record and mix two original recordings for their end-of-year skills project.
The songs have been written by Rhys Clements and have been performed, recorded and mixed by Rhys and fellow students Sky Curtis, Robin Nutley, Lauren Peters and Tegan O'Connell Dorward. The aim of the skills project is to stretch our students and give them the opportunity to produce a vocationally relevant product at the end of their course.
"The Music Technology Extended Diploma students have been fantastic this year," said Matt Foster, the course leader. "They have really developed as studio engineers and music producers and enjoyed working independently in the studio to produce this skills project."
You can listen to the singles; Snow and Different on the Newbury College website www.newbury-college.ac.uk/courses/media-music-and-performing-arts where you can also enrol now for full-time Music Technology courses.
