BIMM London graduate Jules Gulon has been incredibly busy since finishing his Music Production course this year. Since securing his role at Pierce Entertainment, he’s been taking on some really exciting projects, including “Sam Smith at the BBC”. Jules took time out of his busy schedule to answer a some questions on all he’s been up to.
Hi Jules, congrats on graduating this year, what are you up to now?
Thank you! I am currently the studio assistant at Pierce Entertainment, shadowing the brilliant engineers that are Stephen Fitzmaurice and Darren Heelis. Their knowledge, workflows and ethics are impressive and valuable to observe every day.
Getting involved with “Sam Smith at the BBC” is huge, how did that come about?
It is a bit crazy. I’ve been working with them for 3 to 4 months now. Having already helped out with the mixing of Sam’s new album The Thrill of it All and on a few other sessions, this BBC gig coming along was a fantastic opportunity and experience. I am really happy with how the songs turned out. Reading live reactions on the internet while the show was airing was simply priceless.
Any other exciting projects you’ve got coming up?
There are a few more coming, yes! But they wouldn’t be exciting if I could tell you about them now. They will be announced in good time, so I will definitely let everyone know on my social media and website then. But I can’t wait.
How did BIMM prepare you for a career in the music industry?
The multidisciplinary aspect of the course means a lot to me. Learning about how the industry nowadays operates, composition techniques, and production skills is something I have been treasuring as a graduate. I’ve also been encouraged to learn and research more about what already meant a lot to me, which is something I do all the time now. So it was great to receive this strong foundation from my studies.
Where do you see your career going in the future?
Definitely on the music production route. I love recording, producing, mixing, writing and overall crafting something worthwhile with musicians. There is no reason for me to stop now!
