La música empezó siendo para mí el más divertido de todos los juegos. A los 4 años disfrutaba profundamente las interminables horas que pasaba con mi guitarra, para entonces mucho más grande que yo, frente al reproductor de cassettes, repitiendo y replicando las melodías y los acordes que escuchaba en las canciones de Atahualpa Yupanqui, Facundo Cabral, Mercedes Sosa, Charly García, The Beatles…

IrmaSelemanTrio_Ilmari-Fabritius_4I thought I had seen a lot, learned so much, and met so many people from every part of the world when I came to Boston and Berklee, but I was wrong. These thoughts changed after I was offered an opportunity by Berklee to go to Finland and Russia for a Festival called Close Encounters Festival. The Pop & Jazz Konservatorio organized the festival and it took place in different venues in Helsinki and St. Petersburg, Russia.

The Sights (and Tastes) of Malaysia

The following was written by Prince Charles Alexander, associate professor of music production and engineering.

Part One and Part Two, for your reading pleasure.

Hello everyone. This is my third, and last, blog about my trip to the International College of Music (ICOM) in beautiful Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. After a prolonged journey to get to Malaysia because of a typhoon, followed by four incredible days of seminar lectures, great food, and great company at ICOM, our job was done. Jeanine Cowen, Cecil Adderley, Susan Lindsay, and I were through with our Music Development Workshop mission for Berklee College of Music. It was time to relax and enjoy some of the beautiful landmarks and surrounding culture offered by Malaysia. We began our last day with an early morning rise to visit the Petronas Towers, which were the tallest structures in the world from 1998 to 2004. Of course, this presented me with a great opportunity to try out my newly purchased Nikkor 70-300mm lens on the stunning views of the Kuala Lumpur cityscape. The towers have a skybridge on the 42nd floor that we were able to take pictures from.

Berklee Group Lands in Malaysia

The following post was written by Prince Charles Alexander, associate professor of music production and engineering.

Hello everyone. I left for Malaysia at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, August 15 to speak at the International College of Music (ICOM). It’s located in the city of Kuala Lumpur and is run by a Berklee alumna, Irene Savaree. For those of you that don’t know, Malaysia is 12 hours ahead of you so I’m actually blogging from your future. I love it. Anyway, we left at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday and went to Chicago. There was a typhoon in the Pacific so our connecting flight was delayed from 3:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Since we arrived at about 2-ish, we went into Chi-town for lunch and had the best steak I’ve tasted in a long while. It must be that corn-fed Midwestern beef. Mmmm, just thinking about it is making me want to get back to Chicago. Which leads me to another point. I feel like I’m on an episode of Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations because I’ve eaten in Chicago, Hong Kong, and Kuala Lumpur on this trip.
