Guest Lecture: Rachel K Collier

Craig Gamblen

sLive performance and interview with Rachel K Collier – in association with Ableton

With amazing success as a writer, producer, performer and entrepreneur, this session gave our students a valuable insight into how the industry works, while giving them the chance to see Rachel K Collier perform and deconstruct her tracks live combined with a relaxed interview and Q&A session.

“A unique talent for intelligent electronic production and head-turning vocals place artist Rachel K Collier in a league of her own. Combining complex beat programming, technical arrangement and meaningful lyric writing. Her one-of a-kind sound is hard to define.” Ibiza Voice (Oct 2016).

As a die-hard Ableton enthusiast, Collier performs using a multi-instrument technical solo setup. Built around the Push 2 controller, this enables her to perform her studio productions in a live setting.

In Autumn 2017 Collier will tour the UK with fellow Music Technology graduate Rhiipercussion. Alongside the main tour, she will also be running a number of electronic Music Production demos. These demos aim to inspire and encourage more girls to write, produce and perform electronic music live.

A huge thank you to both Rachel and Ableton for giving our students such a great insight into the industry!

Rachel is supported by the PRS Women Make Music.
