BIO

 

Hello, My name is Alex Sealey. I am an aspiring sound designer from South Wales, currently studying Sound Design Technology at the University of Hertfordshire. I have a wide range of talents that I am able to apply to almost any creative context. From playing guitar, bass or keyboard to designing logos and promoting events. I have experience in many different areas having played guitar for many years at grade 7 level, promoting and engineering the Valleys Soundfest 2015, creating websites and using photoshop. My main passion lies in the sound design world where I can use many of the skills gathered though my music technology training and apply them to creative and intuitive sound design. 

My side hobbies include collecting records, collecting retro hi-fi equipment, finding and listening to any surround sound music I can (SACDs, Blu Rays, DVDs and Quadrophonic LPs), going to live shows and cooking!
