Born to Engineer – Andrew Robertson

The ERA Foundation

Andrew Robertson is a Computer Engineer working at Queen Mary, University of London on music signal processing.  He’s engineered a software package that allows bands to liberate themselves from the tyranny of a click track in live performances, setting them free to drive the tempo of their music to the response of the crowd and still keep their layered backing tracks in time with the beat.

‘Born to Engineer – Andrew Robertson’ is the fourth film in the series we’ve produced for the ERA Foundation as part of campaign to attract young people into engineering education and careers.
