My First Month Interning in Los Angeles

Hey everyone,

The picture above is me sitting in my office, on the phone with an important client. Just kidding. My supervisor and I thought it would be funny to start off my posts with a joke. I work in a cubicle, and don’t talk to clients. But hey, I still have two months left here 😉

I’m Christina, and I’m about to enter my last two semesters of school at Berklee. Crazy how time flies. Up until now, I was double majoring in Music Business & Film Scoring. Starting in the fall, I’ll officially be switched over to Music Business & Pro Music (focusing on film scoring and composition). I made the switch because while I love film scoring, and movie scores – they are one of the main reasons I decided to pursue music in college – I’ve learned a lot about myself in the last year. I’ve realized that I am not the type to be able to sit alone and write. I wish I was, but I am stimulated and excited by leading projects with a lot of moving parts and people. I love planning, coordinating and networking. Which is why I’m hoping to find my place in the film industry, but from a more behind the scenes role.

Insider’s Scoop Backstage at Electric Daisy Carnival

By Edward Ma

more EDCLast month, I had the amazing opportunity to attend Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in New York with my classmate Kim Barbosa as Heavy Rotation Records (BPMI) representatives for our artist Glow Team. Heavy Rotations Records is an on-campus record label that signs a select group of Berklee artists each year and helps the signed artists build a solid fanbase until festival season. I learned so much about the live concert industry from working as the point person for Glow Team at EDC, and I’ll be giving the insider scoop on how logistics run in an event as such!

By Belinda Huang

IMG_0706This past weekend, I had an amazing opportunity to play at Longfellow House, a historical site in Boston, through Berklee’s Summer in the City program. Being that I had never stayed in Boston for a summer yet, nor had I played a show in the city before, I was both nervous and excited.

Berklee Indian Ensemble: Have you met Sanjeeta?

Sanjeeta sits down in front of me, eyeing my chocolate muffin. Before she can reach out and take a bite, I grab the muffin and keep it close to me.

1048496_10153001286015226_20759901_o“I just want a bite!” she says, laughing. With Sanjeeta, it’s never just a bite. But then again, that’s what makes her so special – her ability to set her mind on something and then go after it. Be it the numerous opportunities she’s had at Berklee or the numerous “bites” of food she’s had from me over the last two years, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya has never missed a chance to seize the day! A 7th semester Performance major with voice as a principal instrument, she never fails to impress. Inspired, I want to hear her story and what brought her from Delhi to Boston.

国際色豊かなバークリー

こんにちは。今回のブログでは、バークリーの特色の1つである国際的なコミュニティについてご紹介します。学生のほぼ半数が留学生であるバークリーでは、一般教養の科目で色々な言語や、色々な国の文化、音楽の歴史について学ぶことができます。ジャズやロックなどアメリカ系の音楽に留まらず、中東、アジア、ヨーロッパ、南米などなど、まさに世界中の音楽の演奏を学ぶことができる合奏(アンサンブル)の授業が、一週間に400以上に渡って開催されています。

作曲や編曲の授業では、他国の音楽について取り組むこともできますし、自国の音楽の理解を深めることももちろんできます。

Soya Soo 今日は、私が何度かコラボレーションをさせてもらった、マレーシア出身でMusic Production and Engineering専攻を卒業した、Soya Soo (Yew Ping Soo)さんをご紹介します。

現在LAでキャリアを築いているSoyaさん(https://soundcloud.com/soya_soo)は日本の音楽やアニメ文化に傾倒が深く、良い影響を受けているそうです。バークリー在学中から精力的に課外製作に取り組んでいました。私も、色々な国(マレーシア、韓国、インドネシア、台湾、オーストラリア、ノルウェイ、トルコ、日本など)のミュージシャンがコラボレーションする彼のプロジェクト”ä½ YOU by Julia Wu”で、バックコーラスのアレンジをさせていただきました。

今回は、Soyaさんへのインタビューをご紹介します。
