Tim Land

Academic Course Leader in Popular Music and Music Business


I’m a lover of beats, sounds and spaces and have a background in producing electronic and urban music. More recently I’ve been specialising in spatial sound and it’s potential for new auditory experience.


As a musician and producer I have released albums, EP’s and remixes on indie and major labels. I have received a BAFTA for interactive sound work and have toured internationally with award winning bands and as a DJ. I use these experiences to teach composition, production, music business and political economy.  More recently I have been focusing on spatialised sound and the potential it can bring for new music.
