Jack - Creative Music Technology

Creative Music Technology student Jack Cookson entered the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Artist of the Year competition early in 2016. Just a few months later he was performing in the final in the green room of the Royal Albert Hall.

Jack didn’t win but was honoured and thrilled to have got so far. The final was broadcast live on Simon Mayo’s Drivetime show on Radio 2, giving Jack some great exposure the day before the release of his album, Revolt & Resolve.

Dr Adrian Hull, Senior Lecturer in Music Technology, said, “Jack has been a great student at UWE Bristol on the Creative Music Technology course. He's a perfect example of a strong Music Technology student who through studying music theory and the technology that underpins the composition, performance, recording and production of all forms of music nowadays, is then able to deliver a fantastic end product that showcases his extraordinary talent.”
