A trio of Bucks New University Audio and Music Production graduates have won an award from leading music equipment manufacturer Focusrite after producing a series of tracks for up-and-coming musician Hannah Wells.
Alexander Robins, Bradley Rolling, and Conor McNulty, who graduated in BA (Hons) Audio and Music Production, won the Focusrite Prize for Best Music Production Recording.
They were presented with the award at their graduation ceremony at the Wycombe Swan theatre in High Wycombe, in recognition of what Focusrite considers to be the best recording produced by graduates at the University.
The graduates have each won Focusrite Scarlett 6i6 USB audio interface equipment to help them in their future recording careers.
The three tracks for Hannah Wells, a singer/songwriter based in New Addington, were produced with her friend and collaborator, Paloma Domingo.
Alexander said: “We spent a long time working on the backing tracks and perfecting the piece. Hannah Wells is an old friend of mine and was awesome to work with.
“It feels great that the work we completed as a group have been recognised and praised by an organisation like Focusrite.
“Bucks New University has been a great place to study, and the huge amount of hands-on training that was included in our modules has prepared us all perfectly for working in the audio industry.”
The awards were presented by Giles Orford, Marketing Director for Focusrite, and Neil Marron, Global Technical Support Coordinator at Focusrite, who himself studied at Bucks.
Mr Marron said: “We had a particularly strong variety of entries this year and Alexander, Bradley and Conor did extremely well, producing high-quality tracks that we were delighted to reward.”
