Collaboration between Music Practice and Games Design students

Simon Partridge, Senior Lecturer on the Music Practice course, recently invited bev Bush to give a presentation of Games Design student work for Music students and staff as part of a new collaboration between the courses. This was done with a view to bring music and games students together for joint projects within the school. This is now up and running and working well on an informal basis. Next year we plan to introduce this link to the course in a formal way through collaboration on the 2nd year games design  module. 

We have encouraged the students from both disciplines to set up a Facebook group where they can discuss ideas and share opportunites for collaboration. 

This has worked very well so far in the  run up to the 'Dare to be Digital' competition where games design students come together with music and programming students to devlop a game IP for the competition. 

Congratulation to Daniel Scholes, 2nd year games design student, who's team have gone through to the next round
