Peter Jonason

Sound Designer

Since graduating with his Music Production Degree, Peter started working for Focusrite/Novation in their London office based in Tileyard Studios.

Peter's job involves creating, editing, and formatting sound packs for apps to write the descriptions, marketing to their user outreach, and even creating artworks.

He was chosen from a group of over 300 applicants for the position as Sound Creator & Marketer for Novation's 'Amplify' branch, which specialises in making music-making apps such as Novation Launchpad, Groovebox, and Blocs Wave, all of which are available in the AppStore.

Peter has also landed a job as Sveriges Radio’s sound designer, focusing on sound design for podcasts.

We're so pleased Peter's landed on his feet. Here's what he had to say about his role as well as his time at BIMM:

"My job is really varied, which makes it challenging, fun and exciting. I still can’t believe I got it! I feel so lucky to be able to say I love my job! I studied and worked hard throughout my time at BIMM and was given the assets and support I needed from my lecturers and peers. But I guess the most valuable part of it all was - time.

To have the time to just be able to focus on music was invaluable and from previous experience, that's something that can be incredibly hard if you’re working full-time and trying to pursue music on the side."
