Whilst his academic background is in engineering, Elliot also has a strong passion for music and radio. When not studying, Elliot's time is spent producing media and other content for Burn FM (a sample of which can be found below). Some of his other content can be found here. Also included on this page is a player containing a playlist of 'mash-ups', music mixes, and other original music content that he has produced.
During his time at Burn FM, Elliot has worked with various Digital Audio Workstations - such as Reaper, Audacity and Logic Pro - and 'play-out' software including Myriad Playout and Mairlist. Whilst in the role of Director of Technology, Elliot oversaw a £15,000 upgrade of the station's key broadcasting infrastructure. This included replacing the broadcasting equipment and server, as well as introducing new play-out software in our main studio.
In April 2019, Elliot was fortunate enough to attend SRACon 2019, where a number of speakers from various teams and outlets across the country spoke about their experiences in the radio and media industries. In December 2019, Elliot completed a week of work experience within the BBC's Design & Engineering department in London, where he learned about industry approaches to broadcasting and audio playout, design workflows, and content archiving.
