Praktika interaktyvių sistemų ir programinės įrangos kompanijoje “Continuity Studios”
In the period of September, 2015- April, 2016, I participated in Erasmus+ work placement programme through Partners4Value by doing an internship at a small video games and software development start-up „Continuity Studios“ based in Glasgow, UK.
My position at the company was of Sound Engineering intern at the Sound and Video department. The company had just started a new project that tries to bridge the worlds of video game market and interactive installation art. The team was really flexible as my work was divided between learning new sound engineering techniques at the office and exploring sound aspect of the project on my own schedule. This meant I had time explore conceptual and practical musical ideas with live instruments like guitar and effect pedals and also producing textures with laptop.
Within the small team of Continuity Studios Ltd. I had the chance to involve myself not only in formal technical tasks but to experiment with content of their ongoing interactive system project. For these reasons I believe I had a great internship experience where I gained a new skill set and had a chance to develop my creative abilities.
I will definitely use the techniques learned and the opportunity to live in vibrant European city like Glasgow and meeting people with very different cultural background will help both personally and professionally in the future.
