Sound for the Moving Image
In 2 weeks time I’m going back to school, the Glasgow School of Art that is, having been out of education for 5 years. I never imagined I’d go back to study, as I didn’t particularly embrace my first degree in Mechanical Engineering with open arms, in fact, it was pretty hellish. During my career/soul search last winter I went along to the open day at the Art School, having spotted the MDes in Sound for the Moving Image course in the prospectus. Let’s just say this course ticks a lot of boxes and it was great to finally discover something stimulating that I could see myself (hopefully) find a satisfying job in. During the summer, following a portfolio application and interview, I received an unconditional offer, which I happily accepted and now look forward to embarking on a quest for creating pleasing sounds.
The plan is to use this space to document my work and keep a track of progress during the one year Masters, along with additional snippets of sonic interest. There’ll be plenty of theory to absorb, but for the majority of the course I’ll be based in the studio - where I’m looking forward to getting hands-on and sharing my ideas and creations. I’m hoping that over time updating this page will naturally generate a useful online portfolio, and maybe an interesting stop off point for your eyes and ears.
