ACM’s Audio Production Event (APE) returned for 2013 with a stellar line-up of music industry professionals and producers offering students the chance to sit in on exclusive masterclasses and interview sessions, ask questions and book one-to-one tutorials with each of the guests.
2013’s APE lineup included:
- Brad Ellis of Nextmen – Producer/Writer/Remixer/DJ who has worked with Rizzle Kicks, Pixie Lott, Claire McGuire, James Arthur, Ella Henderson, Dynamite MC, Sway.
- Duncan (Pixie) Mills – Producer/Engineer who has worked with Vaccines, Jake Bugg, Lissie, Jamie Cullum, Florence and The Machine, Peace, Beardyman and many more.
- ACM Alumni, Producer/DJ/Artist/Musician/Remixer Alex Metric
- Scott Lawrence of Boost Music – Specialists in sync and library music.
- Mushtaq – Producer for the likes of Damage, Mis-teeq, Stereo MCs, Gorillaz, Guillemots, Amy Winehouse and Tyler James.
“The Audio Production Event puts the best and most inspiring music producers and professionals in front of our students so they gain the best networking opportunities, feedback on their music and expert career advice throughout the day. It’s mutually beneficial for the guests who also learn from our students about new music, latest trends they are into, new ideas and they get to meet ACM’s best up and coming producers that they might want to work with.
We can’t thank the guests enough for their time, wisdom and kindness given to our students throughout the event and look forward to continuing our relationship with them. Looking forward to the next one!”
Chris Parles Head of ACM’s Industry Link Team
“This is the third year that we have run the Audio Production Event at ACM, and I’m glad to say it was a huge success. It’s fantastic to welcome such varied talent from the music industry into our studios, and all the students I have spoken to have gained a huge amount from the chance to sit with such inspiring professionals. I’m looking forward to next year already!”
Ant Greaves Head of ACM’s Audio Production School
“ACM Audio Production Event is a killer format. The 5 guests with 1-2-1 meetings plus career orientated Q & A sessions really serves to inspire ACM producers as to the type of work ethic and approach you need in todays industry.”
Neil Simpson Industry Link Team
“What an incredible event. I dont really get involved with things like this, but I have been so impressed with ACM and the young talent here. I look forward to coming back soon. My management and many people I have worked with are ACM alumni.”
Mushtaq Speaking about APE 2013
“In each of my one to one sessions I had in the back of my mind ‘would I employ them as a studio assistant?’ But by the end of my third session I was thinking I would need a bigger studio!”
Duncan (Pixie) Mills Speaking about APE 2013
ACM would like to thanks all our APE 2013 guests for visiting and sharing their years of music industry and production experience with our students and hope to welcome them back soon. ACM would also like to thank everyone who was involved (including ACM’s Industry Link Team) in this organisation and running of 2013’s Audio Production Event.
