Practical use of the University’s 24/7 recording studio is at the heart of this course which allows you to complete a professional production of your own. This music technology course is designed for students who may be from a performance background and are seeking to develop their skill set with the acquisition of a high level of technical appreciation as a means to increase their career and professional potential. It covers a range of technologies and will include development of your own portfolio of production pieces and access to many of the local music venues. The course, which is built around the practical use of the university’swell equipped recording studio and makes full use of the facilities in the Centre for the Creative Industries, is based on exploring current and emerging technologies relating to audio production, and how these can be used to create music and sound for many applications. There are also opportunities for students to gain work experience in live sound and large scale event production during Focus Wales music festival, which the university is a partner of, comes to Wrexham each spring. The event is a multi-venue festival which places the music industry spotlight firmly on the emerging talent that Wales has to offer the world and attracts more than 200 bands across 20 stages.
