Student Profiles

Pablo Diserens aka Ōtone, music producer and Creative Production (Music) MA alum

“Most importantly, it is what you do with the resources that are given to you that makes each study experience unique. This is a space where [you] have a certain autonomy and can explore [your] creative desires. You're in charge!”

Sofi Paez, pianist and Creative Production (Music) MA alumna

“My favourite part of learning here was the access to the incredible studios. It helped uncover my creativity and explore different aspects of my musical and artistic journey.”

Alexei Galar, composer, sound designer and Creative Production (Music) MA alumnus

“I think sometimes we engage in art in a very individualistic way, but discovering how this MA creates a sense of community… it has been a superb experience”.

VIBKO, electronic musician and Creative Production (Music) MA alumnus

“The programme gave me the creative space to pinpoint the direction I wanted for my artistic career. Richard Scott was very good at gently introducing ideas that I could make my own. I started the MA thinking that I knew what I wanted to do already but quickly found that new ideas created new possibilities.”
