BBC Introducing in partnership with AMP: Live performance from The Scruff, 10/12/14

Today was the first studio-based multi-camera production that we have undertaken as part of our new partnership with BBC Introducing.

Students from BA (Hons) Audio & Music Production, supported by tutor Dan Peters, captured the sound and their mixes will go to air on the BBC this weekend. The BBC have sent out this tweet: Recording @TheScruff_ at @bucksnewuni for #BBCIntroducing this Saturday night at 8pm on @BBC3CR
Students who specialize in sports and live events production within BA (Hons) Film & TV Production, supported by tutor Gary Emmins, filmed both the live music performances as well as an interview with the band that was conducted by BBC Introducing presenter Gareth Lloyd.
This is what The Scruff had to say about their day:
“The students were great, totally professional. We were made very welcome and the whole operation was slick on every level. It’s been a pleasure to work with the students from Bucks New University.”

The videos will be presented on the BBC Introducing YouTube pages as from this weekend.

New Music Rehearsal Space at Bucks

It’s great to see work on the new Music Rehearsal space finishing this week, and the results look pretty impressive!  You can take a virtual tour of the space too at 

The room was commissioned to support students on the  Music Performance Management Degree in the Dept of Music & Live Events Management.  Kitted out with a brand new  Yamaha Drum Kit, Fender and Ampeg Amps, Mackie PA and Shure Microphones, it should be the perfect space to practice.  Whilst module and course related bookings will take priority,  we’re keen for other Music & Events Management and Audio & Music Production students to make use of any empty slots too.   Bookings will start in the new year and will be handled by Media Resources.  We’ll let you know more about the bookings process and how it’ll work in January , just as soon as all the core course bookings are loaded up
