Benjamin Costantini

Instructor Global Entertainment and Music Business

“At Berklee’s campus in Valencia, I attempt to promote an inspirational classroom atmosphere and develop innovative projects with the students, such as a music industry blog or a series of hands-on assignments with local musicians. Together with industry veteran and fellow teacher Ferran Coto, I’ve founded Disrupción Records, the first student-run independent label on the Valencia campus.”

“I’m based in Paris where I work for LeWeb, one of the most talked-about tech conferences in the world. Between June 2011 and September 2014, I was involved in the development of Midem, the yearly business-to-business event dedicated to the music ecosystem with a specialty in music business, social media, artists, and training. I have strengthened a diverse and international network of music industry professionals and high-profile executives from trade organizations to managers, including technology and advertising leaders.”

“For over 10 years until 2010, I was based in Cartagena, three hours south of Valencia. This is where, in 2004, I founded a music label called La Crème Records, which was identified in Spain as a grassroots movement for flexible licensing such as Creative Commons. As a music entrepreneur, I have been in charge of the release of over 50 albums, lots of shows, and some international tours (China, Central and Southeastern Europe), mostly in a fair and collaborative framework. This experience led me to work with all kinds of performing arts professionals on small- to medium-scale projects and to promote free culture among them.”
