Connor Haynes

Associate Lecturer, Studio & Live Music Production

Connor teaches Music Production at BIMM Institute Manchester. He began his studies at SSR Manchester back in 2012, completing a BSc (Hons) in Studio and Live Music Production. It was at this time he crafted his recording, mixing and mastering skills to a professional level, while working with local Manchester bands such as Mother and Naked (On Drugs).

At this time, he was gaining much experience in music studios in the greater Manchester area, such as Oscillate studios and Supa Earth studios.

Connor specialises in studio music production, however he has much experience in the live sound industry, having worked with the PA company Audile for festivals such as Parklife, Beat-herder and Festival No. 6. Along this line of work, he has also helped facilitate performances from high profile artists such as Happy Mondays, Public Enemy, 2ManyDJs and Stormzy.

To further his academic achievements, Connor graduated in December 2018 from the University of Manchester to achieve a Masters in Music Composition (for Electro-acoustic and Interactive Media), widening his skills set as a music composer and as an academic.

He currently is part of the experimental post-punk rock band Slow Knife as a drummer, alongside releasing electronic music under the artist name of Kin (the Self) using software such as Ableton and Max MSP.
