A Dream Internship

By Joshua Taylor

Josh in his natural habitat

It’s not everyday you get the chance to work with your musical idols.

However, this summer exactly that happened. I stumbled upon the chance to join an instrument design startup with a small group of amazing people who had a potentially groundbreaking concept. Thanks to Dan Harple and his company Shamrock Ventures I was brought into the fold about a month ago and have been working with the team since.

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.

Six Eyes: Makeathon for the Berklee Summer Lab

On June 3rd 2016, BerkleeICE and IDEO brought together 40 students for a Makeathon for the Berklee SummerLab Internship Program. On a nine-to- five work schedule, students were assigned a brief to discuss, research and prototype, ending with progress presentations to the group. Joel Stevenson, Joanna Mok and Pablo Lalama took the time to tell us about their experiences and takeaways.

Joel Stevenson, Belmont University

“I’m a graduate student of the interaction design, information architecture program at the University of Baltimore. I have had a passion for interaction design for many years since I enrolled in that program, and wanted to branch out and connect with other designers and students interested in interaction design from different academic settings. I’m also an electronic music producer and have been for over a decade. So, when I heard of a possible opportunity at Berklee and IDEO to not only meet other students from various backgrounds interested in interaction design, but to work with them to create new and innovative prototypes that relate to music and technology, I knew it was too good of an opportunity to pass up! Not only was I able to meet fantastic music, business, and design students from various backgrounds, I was able to effectively collaborate with them to solve a problem that exists in the music industry today. The opportunity to gather different perspectives, ideas, and experiences was rewarding enough on its own, but the ability to work as a team and combine all of our strengths from our respective fields to create an ideal product, that exceeded my expectations.” – Joel Stevenson, Design Graduate Student, Belmont University
