Aspiring musicians have collaborated with a college specialising in the creative industries to fine tune their sound.
Students from the City of Oxford College visited SAE Oxford’s state-of-the-art facilities in Littlemore to record tracks for their EPs.
They were able to broaden their experience by using industry-standard equipment and facilities to record in a professional setting.
The sessions also contribute to their coursework.
The EPs will be promoted extensively via social media and performed at a final major project event at the O2 Academy in Cowley Road over two nights on May 21 and 22.
Nick Reiber Hodgson, music lecturer at City of Oxford College, said the opportunity provided students with an ‘invaluable’ experience of recording in a live lounge setting.
Second year student Ollie Rodgers is a member of indie rock band Eunoia.
He said: “Recording at SAE Institute in Oxford was an amazing experience. It gave a real insight into the recording processes, which ran seamlessly and without fault.
“Overall, a stellar performance and opportunity from SAE with outstanding facilities and staff supplying us with a backbone for our upcoming EP for Eunoia.”
SAE, which offers degrees and short courses in audio, film, the music business and web development, will host an assessed gig for first year music students on May 24.
