Previous participants have said:

“The project was an eye-opening experience, which has enabled me to get a taste of what it’s like playing live collaboratively. I’m really grateful to have had the opportunity to work with some amazing people – their advice and support has given me more knowledge and confidence when approaching my own musical projects. I am now more open towards critical feedback and have received a tonne of new information on how to professionally perform music live.”

“It pushed me into new areas, working with people I had just met to organise and develop a full showcase of material. The material on the course exposed me to what is required of anyone who wishes to pursue work in the creative industry. It also opened my eyes to the variety of options available to a person, and made the whole area seem less dark and daunting.”

“It was a great project, allowing me and five others to not only learn about live performance, but actually get to perform at Band on the Wall. It was a great confidence boost for any aspiring producer and I would recommend it to any up and coming producers.”

“The idea of creating material in a really loose way was something that was mentioned a lot – creating musical material that you can then sample, analyse or otherwise use is a simple but really useful idea for me since I almost always have a pre-determined use for a sound. I’ve been using it in tandem with a stronger reliance on randomness to create sounds that surprise me.”
