I'm in my final year for BA Creative Music Technology. My course takes the approach of a liberal arts degree, but there are potential pathways into audio programming (which I am doing) and multimedia work (an emerging and exciting field). From the get go, our course leaders have encouraged an experimental approach to urban dance music, and the course serves as a bit of a feeder into Bristol's vibrant underground scene. You've got producers like Asusu, Addison Groove, Batu, Ploy, Appleblim, Bruce, Arkist who all did CMT. Lots of A's. Since starting my course, my interests have shifted from I suppose functional dance music towards tech-y, experimental and dare I say avant-garde stuff, but still intended within a soundsystem context.
It's been very insightful and helped me to develop fundamental attitudes that are invaluable to me in regards to principles of sound as an artistic medium, creative processes and a wider appreciation of art and culture. Those things, among others may sound broad but the last three years have enabled me to focus on a very specific (and personal) artistic practice which gives me a deep sense of fulfilment.
While my course has been instructive on the technical side of music production, I think it is less like places like BIMM which offer a more practical/vocational approach - showing the how as opposed to the why which I find so enlightening.
Looking to continue at my university (Bath Spa - UK) to do a MMus in Sound Art or Sound Production. I haven't decided which yet.
