You might have thought about working as a producer in a recording studio or being the director of a feature film but, with a sound understanding of science, engineering and technology as well as a creative art such as Music there are many more exciting options available to you in today’s thriving Creative Industries.
A career in…Music and recording
This is the classic career choice for audio experts, with so many opportunities to create your own niche while working in a recording studio.
Working in a studio might involve anything from repairing or installing equipment to writing string parts for a new track. You could become a music producer or studio engineer, working with recording artists to create and develop their sound. Top producers are really influential in the music industry, and are always in demand.
One area you might not have considered is audio restoration, remastering and re-editing. Record labels are always looking to re-release material from their back catalogue, but they need people who understand music and the science of audio engineering to make the old recordings sound fresh again.
Of course, as a talented musician with a scientific knowledge of audio technology, you could become an innovative composer and performer in your own right too!
