Fourteen learners made the trip to the live-in farmhouse studio in Monmouth, where the band Queen recorded their landmark album A Night at the Opera. During their three-day residential visit, the group recorded solo projects and completed mixes for Liverpudlian singer/songwriter Lee Broderick and his band. ey worked under the guidance of music producers Joe Jones and Josh Tyrell, picking up many new technical tips and industry insights. Music Technology student Henry Hallet said: “It was an amazing experience to be able to sit at a Neve console and create a mix, as well as have hands-on experience with advanced microphones that you can only ever imagine being able to use again. Also, having someone sit down and explain everything in detail was an invaluable experience that I won’t forget.” Rock eld Studios is also where Oasis recorded their multi-platinum follow-up album (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? and where Coldplay recorded their Grammy-winning debut album Parachutes. Music Technology lecturer Luke Taplin said: “The trip was a great success, and we hope to take more students there in coming years. We’re always looking for ways to give our students extra experiences and inspiration, and they’ve come back from Rockfield buzzing with new ideas and wanting to experiment with new techniques.” Black Sabbath, e Stone Roses, Iggy Pop and e Cure have all recorded at Rock eld Studios, achieving widespread recognition and notable success in the eld of recorded entertainment. LEARNING ABOUT THE SAMARITANS Last month Langley WI were privileged to have two representatives from Samaritans to talk to them about their work with suicide prevention. It is a sad fact that over 6,800 people took their own lives in 2018 and that suicide rates increased by 11.8%. One of the WIs current campaigns recognises the importance of parity between mental health and physical health and asks members to take action to make it as acceptable to talk about mental health as physical health, and to lobby government for better support for mental illness. Charles and Ted (not their real names) talked to the group about their work, not only with people that are Samaritans is a 24/7 organisation and they can be reached by phone on 116 123 or by email/text or at their drop-in centre in Southampton. The WI provides women with educational opportunities and the chance to build new skills, to take part in a wide variety of activities and to campaign on issues that matter to them and their communities.
