Barnsley College tutor hosts all-new creative podcast

Our Higher Education tutor Tim, accompanied by fellow co-hosts, Carola and Russ.

Tim Canfer, a Higher Education Music Technology tutor and Creative Industries lecturer, has joined two co-hosts to launch a new podcast series that explores the intersection between the creative industry and academia.

Sound Learnings is a podcast about education in audio, music production and music technology. Tim is joined by Russ Hepworth Sawyer, a Mastering engineer and Lecturer at York St. John University and Professor Carola Boehm, Professor of Arts and Higher Education at Staffordshire University. All three co-hosts are educators, researchers and have professional profiles in music and audio.

Tim said: “Producing the podcasts has been a lot of fun and I know that our Higher Education Music students will learn a great deal from tuning in. We explore a wide range of topics with many experts from industry and academia, allowing students to gain a better understanding of these worlds, which we hope will benefit their work and creative practice.”

In the first series of the Sound Learnings podcast, the co-hosts chat with guest from the world of either education or industry. The characteristic that connects all the guests is that they value education specifically, and that they relate to the world of industry.

The first episode is out now and the next episode is a chat with Barnsley College Music Course Leader and former mix engineer for Pete Waterman, Tim Speight. Future episodes include discussions with Flying Colors manager Bill Evans, mastering engineers Mike Cave and Katie Tavini, educator, researcher and Eurovision Song Contest contender, ‘Stereo Mike’ Exarchos, and bass guitarist Amlak Tafari.

You can listen to the first episode now on Spotify, Apple Music Podcasts and the Sound Learnings website.
