SSR Manchester - Texture Visit
Texture Visit
This afternoon we took our students to visit Texture in the northern quarter. Dubbed Manchester's "multi-media" bar, Texture is a fantastic space to showcase both audio and visual performances, and so it seemed like the perfect place to host our student performance exams.

As part of our Electronic Music Production & DJ Practice BA (Hons) course, our students are assessed in various subject areas, including performance. As part of their course, students are encouraged to investigate DJing first hand as performers.

The visit today was to recognise what attributes are needed in a venue to help them as performers create the best musical experience for their audience. It is always important for the students to see where they are going to be playing so they can fully visualise where and how they are going to create their 20 minute set, so today's visit was a good starting point for students exam preparation.

Massive thanks to Texture who will be hosting the "DJ as a performer" end of year exam in January!
