Bucks New Uni’s long term partners, Sennheiser UK recently played host to our Audio & Music Production Freshers at their UK headquarters in Marlow. Sennheiser’s Phil Cummings introduced what is now widely regarded as the leading microphone and headphone manufacturing company in the world. The trip was also an opportunity to hear about how the partnership benefits Bucks students, and in particular, the annual Sennheiser Scholarship Scheme, where the winning first year student will receive £1500 in cash, along with a range of Sennheiser gear to help them through their studies and kick start their career in audio production. The visit included a Q &A with the students’ live audio lecturer at Bucks, Dan Peters, who talked about his recent work with legendary dance act, Faithless. The morning rounded off with an interview with Joe Campbell; long term Live Sound Engineer for The Prodigy. More recently, Joe has been working as Monitor Engineer for Adele and the visit to Sennheiser came just before Joe headed into rehearsals for Adele’s new live show and her much anticipated follow up album to her record breaking release ‘19’.
