I chose to study the Digital Composition and Performance - MSc programme because I wanted to formally develop my creative practice. Before starting the programme I did not have a meaningful relationship with the technology I used to create music - with an undergraduate degree in Audio Engineering and a career in Digital Media, I knew that studying Digital Composition and Performance and living in Scotland would be a breath of fresh air.
I began my studies in 2013 as a full time student. I quickly became emotionally engaged with the environment - the incredible community of artists, the culture of the city, and the forward thinking that’s promoted by the university.
Realising original musical works through computer science absolutely changed my creative drive. My favourite parts of the programme were the workshops with Eddie Prevost and Sabine Vogel, where several of us performed together as a free improvisation ensemble.
