Earlier this year one of our producer course students, Bernard Knightly, brought in ‘The Little Kings’ to record a track for his final project, called ‘Wave Riding’. Bernard used two of our second year students as his tracking engineers, David Robinowitz and Julian Jones. The track ‘Wave Ridding’ has now been played on 5fm in conjunction with the Spring Tide festival held in Camps Bay last weekend. It’s great to hear one of our students project is receiving air play on a national radio station like 5fm. Keep it up guys.Share

A few months ago Keith Farquharson, Freshly Ground‘s live and studio engineer, invited four of our students to job shadow in his studio. One of those students, Justin Ash, currently doing 2nd year at Cape Audio College, was chosen by Keith to help him out on a semi regular basis.
The last two nights, 4th and 5th of October, the Cape Town sound engineering community had the opportunity to attend the Mic to Monitor Tour 2010, a very informative seminar brought to us by SEGMA. It was really great to see so many of our past and current students attending such a workshop. This gave them the opportunity to meet each other, as well as other working professionals in the local sound industry, from film to music to radio. Students were even able to use the breaks to chat and rub shoulders with high profile international engineers Graham Boswell, Peter Nash and Hugh Robjohns, who were the speakers at the event.
