The best projects from our students in music & sound together on one compilation!

We are looking for outstanding student work for our third "Campus Compilation". For many students, the release is the first commercial publication that already serves as an important reference during the courses at the Academy and after their graduation. The design as well as the entire project management was also implemented by our students . The jury picked the best 15 tracks out of more than 100 exciting projects. The sampler was released on Open Day in July at all Campuses worldwide.
