Suhhyun Sarah Kwon is a fourth semester student at Berklee, dual majoring in Film Scoring and Contemporary Writing and Production. 버클리에서 Film Scoring과 Contemporary Writing and Production 복수전공으로 다섯번째 학기를 맞는 권서현입니다. 영어로 발음하기 어려운 이름이라 Sarah라는 이름을 사용하고 있습니다.
봄 학기가 끝나고 여름 학기 시작 하기전 2주의 짧은 방학동안 켈리포니아에 다녀왔는데요. 학교 근처인 Hynes Convention Center에서 공항까지 무료로 갈 수 있는 방법을 소개하고자 합니다!
Massport 또는 Logan Airport Express Shuttle이라는 이름으로 파란색 버스인데요. 버클리 근처에서는 Hynes Convention Center와 Copley역에 경유합니다. (참고로, 지하철 역 Hynes Convention Center와는 다른 곳입니다. 버클리 건물인 921 건너편에 있는 건물입니다.)
Hynes Convention Center에서 출발하는 이 공항셔틀은 아침 5시부터 저녁 9시까지 20분 간격으로 운행됩니다. 공항에서 출발하는 셔틀은 아침 6시부터 저녁 10시까지 마찬가지로 20분 간격으로 운행됩니다.
승객 한명마다 $5이지만 보스턴 지하철/버스 카드인 Charlie Card를 보여주기만 하면 무료!입니다.
보스턴에 오시거나 누가 올 때 미리 준비하시면 택시비 약 $30도 절약할 수 있고 바로 학교 근처로 올 수 있으니 참고하시길 바래요
학기 초 아직 조금이라도 여유로울 때 Boston Public Library에 다녀왔습니다. 역시 날씨가 좋아지니 아무리 더워도 기분이 좋네요!

Why did you move to the city you’re living in now?
After graduation, I was fortunate to spend two years on the road performing in Europe with Disney and Nickelodeon. Then I became anxious to create my own music and chose New York City as my base because of its array of creative opportunities. For me NYC provides work in TV, film, recording and live performances in small venues, each of these experiences have shaped my music. I work hard at connecting with other musicians and enjoy collaborations where I can network with musicians from many styles. Continue reading →

This spring semester I was fortunate to attend Larry Watson’s symposium “Kendrick Lamar: Coonery or Cutting Edge?” where he had faculty discuss many African American related issues as well as students talking about songs on Kendrick Lamar’s most recent album, To Pimp a Butterfly. Described by Kendrick as “honest, fearful and unapologetic”, the record captures the energy of the rapper’s sharp flows and poignant lyricism while making profound metaphors that make statements on race, stereotypes, and many other issues that plague the African-American community.
While everybody who spoke had interesting perspectives and valid points, the impression that I got was that many of the students were missing the point, and explored the music on their own terms. I don’t think it’s wrong to do so but it is important to consider the source as well as its environment, which may not necessarily align its values with other types of music. Perhaps some students are more reluctant than others to speak freely on race issues, especially when there are a lot of people in the room that take these issues very seriously. In a school where networking is so valued, it’s almost understandable to see many aspiring musicians become overly conscious about their image and their words as to not squander their opportunities.
