SAE takes great pleasure in announcing a new and exciting collaborative partnership with the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance (ICMP) bringing together creative students from both institutes.
The ICMP is widely recognised as one of Europe’s leading schools of modern music. Established almost a quarter of a century ago, the ICMP has been developing and delivering cutting-edge courses to students of contemporary music for longer than any other UK-based school.
A series of events are planned over the next 12 months resulting in a perfect arrangement for the UKâ€™s top two creative schools. The event on 7th July saw visiting ICMP students along with students from the University of Southern California (Thornton School of Music) busy writing, rehearsing and recording original music. This marks the first of a number of student collaborations. All tracks were
recorded and produced by 2nd year SAE audio degree students at SAE Londonâ€™s impressive state of the art facilities. The exceptional standard of the finished production reflected the talent and teamwork of all the students who participated in the event.
ICMP are innovators, not only in education but also in creating an atmosphere of excellence as well encouraging students to â€?real life networkâ€œ in the creative world of music and arts. This vision is shared by SAE Institute and has been the motto of the schoolâ€™s 52 colleges around the world.
The association of SAE and ICMP is a match made in heaven, with opportunities available for hundreds of students to work in cooperative environment indicative of the real world of performance and music production.
