UK: Thames Valley University (TVU) is marking the launch of its new Masters Degree in Record Production with a series of free public lectures. The Making Records guest lecture series constitutes a collaboration between the University's London College of Music and its 'business-facing arm', Future Showcase.

The series began on October 1 with producer and MPG patron Robin Millar (pictured), who will be followed by airSOUND inventor Ted Fletcher on October 22. Public Enemy collaborator Hank Shocklee will consider rap production on November 12, while producer and engineer Phil Harding will reflect on his career on December 10.

The lecture series was welcomed by Millar, who commented: "The traditional recording studio apprenticeships of the 20th century worked well for a simple centralised analogue music industry. The complex nature of today's music and media worlds makes intensive academic courses, such as those offered at TVU, essential. The 'Making Records' lectures, which [featured] traditionally trained producers and engineers, are a great way for people to gain insight into the philosophy, psychology and momentum, which are the three most valuable components for a successful recording session."

Although the lectures are free, there is a limited number of places and demand is expected to be high. To book a place at the three remaining lectures, or for more information, visit www.tvu.ac.uk/fsmakingrecords, email futureskills@tvu.ac.uk or call +44 (0)300 123 2244. Each session will start at 6pm and will be held at TVU's Ealing Campus on St. Mary's Road, London W5.
