We’re looking for creative thinkers from a wide variety of backgrounds, who have a passion for working with sound and music. You’ll need to be keen to explore music making at the edge of contemporary stylistic tendencies.

Generally we look for a good first degree, 2:1 or higher. Often this will be in Music or Music Technology. However, we accept applicants with other degrees where they can demonstrate relevant experience.
