The University of Hertfordshire has long had a music department of great distinction and with all full time members of staff being active performers and/or composers, it has focused on sound design and technology, and composition degree courses. Through UHRecordings, undergraduates from existing courses as well as the new Music Entertainment and Industry Management course gain invaluable first-hand experience in the recording process.
UHRecordings offers a unique opportunity for students to participate in the creation of a professional product. The label presents non-standard repertoire featuring professional artists and is produced by an experienced professional producer. Students participate in the recording process and contribute to all aspects of production as sound technicians, designers or managers.
UHRecordings produces a limited number of physical products (CD’s) for each release, as well as downloads.
What people say about UHRecordings:
‘UHR can be relied on to reveal unusual and intriguing repertoire. Show casing performers well worth the attention-all of that with great sounding recordings. The University of Hertfordshire is to be congratulated for fostering this label.’ The Guardian
‘The diversity of the music on offer hasn’t got in the way of a clear identity for the label: each of the CDs already available has a catchy overall title, and the covers have a unifying design: I will now know a UH Recordings product wherever I see it.’ International Record Review
