Virtual Records

Virtual Records Workshop

Virtual Records is an innovative new program which sees students work solo or in groups to create music sleeve art and lyrics for a fictional music act, or one to promote self-identity.

Students will create their own cover sleeve for their 45 single with illustrator, Lauren Habarow, and lyrics with author, Craig Dent.

Virtual Records explores 3 themes of Self-Identity, Empowered Imagination, and Creative Expression within Music & Visual Communication Design curriculums.

“I have been inspired by the world of music, and how it is conceptualised, from punk rock to new wave to grunge, hip hop and techno,” Dent says.

Students can then publish their work in a virtual space, sharing online with youth from Young Somerset, UK.

Date: Wednesday 14 April
Time: 10:00am
