Case Studies

MUSIC TECHNOLOGY STUDENTS MAKE TRACK FOR VIRAL PARODY VIDEO GC Music students recently remastered and put together a backing track for GC's parody video to launch the GET FRESH programme. The video named The Fresh Prince of Gloucestershire featured GC Performing Arts student Lee Jones who rapped along to the music. The track was very propfessional and the students worked very hard in the recording studios to ensure it was perfect. The video has over 4,000 hits on YouTube and can be viewed by searching for 'The Fresh Prince of Gloucestershire'
