Focus Writing Camp: Collaborative Challenge

Join us for a collaborative writing challenge, hosted by fellow composer/producer and collaborative enthusiasts, lecturer John Davies and online school co-ordinator Michael Denny.


During the first session (Tues 26th April) you’ll be allocated a group of fellow students. You’ll then have just over an hour to come up with an original track idea in response to this term’s brief. After the session you’ll then have three weeks to develop the track idea into a fully formed ‘demo’ to play at a second showcase event (Tues 17th May). We welcome students working in any genre and style who are open to collaboration and experimentation. Please also load your DAW prior to the event as you will need to share your screen and audio to collaborate.

Please make sure that when you sign up for this event you are also available to join the follow-up showcase.


We’ll introduce this term’s brief at bang-on 7:30pm (London time) and you’ll work in your groups to create a new track idea that responds to it (in any way you want). Someone from your group will upload a bounce of wherever you’ve managed to get to by 8:45pm then enjoy a well-earned break (whilst we download your tracks ready for playback). At 9pm we’ll have a quick listen to what y’all manage to come up with!

Sensei Challenge:

More experienced producers wanting a bit of an ‘advanced workout’ can elect to take the SENSEI CHALLENGE - to create a score to a short film-clip (which will be revealed at the beginning of the event).


Links to the brief, the material you will need for the event and the folder to upload your work to can be found HERE (available at 7:30pm on the day)
