CAP Selects: Singles is a new weekly series dedicated to showcasing the outstanding work of our Creative Audio Production & Sound Engineering students. The original singles featured were created from scratch by students from both our one-year Certificate and three-year Bachelor courses. We’ll be adding a new single to this post every single week — so stay tuned!
CAP Selects: Singles S1
Week 3: ‘Forest Path’ by Dillon Sutherland, from his featured album Habitat Obscura
“The concept of the album as a whole is representing various habitats, living or stationary, through journeys or my own interpretation of these environments. Some directly represent a place or my imagination of that place, while some are only a feeling I have had while experiencing something personally.“

Week 2: ‘Monkey Cage’ by Rick Berg, of Rick&Rough
“‘Monkey Cage’ was at first an homage to going out and meeting other people – or in this case fellow chimps. Usually when going out at night, there is always this hint of light-hearted foolishness and brainlessness in the air. Therefore the lyrics, “I got to feed the monkeys,” and “I’m even ‘feasting’ on them” are meant to be understood in a symbolic way. As the nights progress, people tend to deteriorate at a quick pace, indulging in binge drinking and drug abuse, so much that they’re even feasting on themselves. The monkeys are let loose!”
Week 1: ‘Inquisition’ by Marcelo Mantilla, aka Ponder Mars
“It is about working through an existential crisis, prompted by severe health issues, and all the incredible emotions that can come out of such profound, constant battle from within. While I am new to cinematic music, it is through this medium that I believed such a crisis could be best expressed.”
