SAE students had the opportunity to show off their skills when Byron based indie band, Animal Ventura, held a live music session early Tuesday morning.
Groovy soulful melodies echoed through the campus as audio students rushed to optimise the sound and their photographer counterparts buzzed around attempting to capture the best angles. There was even a drone flying over to give that extra little touch.
Charlie Fisher, one of the students present, said that this was a great opportunity to finally get to put all that theoretical work into practice.
‘Holding these live sound sessions is awesome, getting to use all the high-end equipment is such a great hands-on learning experience,’ he told The Echo.
‘After I finish I really want to do more studio work as well as DJ events and the more experience I can get here the more confident I feel to get there.’
Fernando Aragones, the bands’ lead singer, described the day as a ‘win-win’ opportunity.
‘We get to practice and get some cool footage and content while giving them a helping hand with their studies.’
The session was held as part of an initiative by SAE to open its doors to local artists.
