This March we were especially pleased to be able to welcome the award winning Media composer Tess Tyler to the Bristol campus of The British & Irish Modern Music for a talk with music production students about her career and methods of working. Three sessions were held over two days exploring the nature of ‘non-linear’ composition – the basis of video game composition. Tess described the fundamentals of her creative process layering sound blocks and building a soundtrack from scratch. It was great to hear her thoughts and her advice to BIMM students, not only about the practicalities in composition, but also about hardware technology too – a very informative session.
The Ivors Academy thanks Mark Bowers (Head of Music Industry and Artist Development), Dan Brown (Industry Placements Coordinator) and Jack Gibbons (Music production module leader/tutor) at BIMM Bristol for their help with this event.
