Simon Horsey

PhD Student

Simon’s PhD explores aspects of music which enhance immersion in film and games media.  

After 20 years teaching Music in various British Schools in the Middle East and Spain he decided to update his knowledge of media music with an MA in Orchestrating for Films, Games and Television with the University of Chichester and Thinkspace Education.

Simon has always been fascinated by which aspects of music are responsible for the level of immersion we experience when interacting with media such as films or games. His research target is to discover which particular elements of music are responsible for deeper immersion in different media. He is very much looking forward to working across disciplines in both the media and psychology departments

Simon’s research is supervised by Dr Stephen Baysted (Reader in Film Composition ) and Dr Antonina Pereira

(Psychology Programme Co-ordinator / Senior Lecturer in Psychology)
