Keen to stress that Audio is about so much more than music, SAE London student Karis Taylor took some time to tell us about the work she’s been doing as part of the Audio Production course. Having recently appeared as a guest on The Johana Riquier Show where she spoke about game audio implementation, we wanted to learn more about what drew Karis to this area of the creative industry.
Did you always want to study Audio? What inspired you to come to SAE?
Yeah, I’ve always been interested in music since I was a child. My dad played guitar and we had various instruments knocking around so I was always making noise. My dad used to repair and sell old computers and gave me one with a very old version of Cubase when I was about 13 and that is when the passion for music technology really lifted off. I haven’t looked back since to be fair. I applied to SAE in 2008 after college where I studied Music technology but it took till 2019 for me to finally take a step back into education. Not quite sure why I never ended up going in 2008, I think I was just keen to come out of education and work whilst finding opportunities to work within the industry as a backing vocalist and session musician.
