Colin Bradburne


I have been involved in music all my life and over the years have played in various different bands. I gained a BSc in Music Technology and Audio Systems Design at the University of Derby and went on to build and run my own recording studio in Warrington. I then moved on to focus more on freelance sound engineering in not only recording studios, but also touring the world with a variety of artists (Opeth, Lacuna Coil, Uriah Heep) as either a backline technician, monitor or front-of-house engineer before coming to work at the University of Leeds.

As Recording and Music Technology Technician I am responsible for:

  • maintaining the Music Technology rooms
  • recording undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD performances
  • technical lead for the University of Leeds International Concert Series


  • BSc (Hons) Music Technology & Audio Systems Design
