Marc Alexandru Tint - BA (Hons) Music (Production with Popular)

Meet ambitious international student Marc Alexandru Tint, who is currently in his second year on our BA (Hons) Music (Production with Popular) degree.  When he isn't exploring the city of Leeds, he is busy experimenting with different genres and collaborating with students on other pathways. 

Has your music / approach / technique changed at all since your first year?

The way I write, record and produce my music has changed a LOT since my first year. First of all, I started to dive into various music genres that were unfamiliar to me (at that point, anything other than Rock and Metal was something new and unexplored) and I started writing Pop, Rap, R&B, Trap and EDM music just to experiment with different sounds and vibes. My production skills have increased massively over the last two years at Leeds Conservatoire and so has my guitar playing technique.

What has been the most interesting project you have worked on so far?

Since coming to Leeds Conservatoire, I have collaborated on different songs with students from various courses. So far, I think the one that was the most interesting was my guitar & sax remix of Post Malone's "Rockstar ft. 21 Savage" that I did with Josh Durke, a jazz student from the year below. Before that, I had zero experience with brass instruments and it was quite challenging to combine my electric guitar with his saxophone on top of a Trap beat.

Is there anything that has really made you push yourself as a musician or anything new that you've not tried before?

My main motivation is to outdo my competition. Right now, one of my main influences is Cole Rolland, a Canadian guitar player and producer, and whenever I work on something new I push myself to come up with better, more innovative content than he does. I find this really challenging and I definitely need more time to improve my skills in order to be able to top what he does, but that's one of the things that makes me progress. As I mentioned previously, a lot of the music that I make now was something new to me before coming to study at Leeds Conservatoire.

What do you get up to outside of Leeds Conservatoire?

I love going to the gym and traveling around the UK. Being a foreigner, I have many places that I want to explore, so I often find myself in a coach, visiting different cities. Apart from that, I spend the majority of my time working on my own musical projects and working at my job, as a Deliveroo rider.

What is the best thing about living and studying in Leeds?

For me it's the city. It's very pretty and everywhere I go, I can just walk there. I don't go partying or clubbing, so unfortunately I can't say anything about that, but I sometimes go to gigs and I can say that there's always something going on, there's always a band performing somewhere.

What advice would you give to a prospective student thinking of applying to your course?

The courses are amazing and teachers are really friendly and helpful. Expect to learn a lot here at Leeds Conservatoire, but at the same time know that you have to further research at home, in your own time, if you want to see real progress.

How would you describe your experience at Leeds Conservatoire so far in three words?

Informative, engaging, fun!
