Berklee Valencia Joins the Second Edition of Un Mundo de Fusión Digital

On Thursday, July 15, Berklee Valencia participated in the second edition of Un Mundo de Fusión Digital, an international conference hosting experts from more than eight countries that combined virtual and in-person sessions. The conference was livestreamed on Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) platforms. 

Taking place at the Facultat de Bellas Artes of the UPV, the event included conversations on the challenges of the digital humanities and arts, and their connection with talent, education, communication, knowledge, technology, and property rights.  

Berklee Valencia presented two panels. In the first panel, María M. Iturriaga, executive director of the Valencia campus, and Simone Pilon, dean of Academic Affairs, discussed artistic education in a hybrid world and the opportunities that this new model brings. In the second panel,  Ryn Jorgensen M.M. ’21,  a recent graduate of the Master of Music in Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games program, shared their vision on technology and sound, and how these concepts are applied to video games in a remote environment.

Many respected groups from the education field participated in the conference, including;  the Organization of Ibero-American States (OEI), Crue Spanish Universities, as well as groups of experts from other Spanish universities (e.g., University of Valencia, University of Córdoba, and University of Extremadura). Other guest speakers included José E. Capilla Román, rector of the UPV; Pascual Crespo, digital director at Universal Music Spain; Pedro Javier Campillo, expert at Telefónica’s Media Innovation and Entertainment department; Maite Gómez, director of YouTube Spain and Portugal; and Rocío Echevarría, digital business director at Prisa Radio, among many others. 

The event took place thanks to the collaboration between Berklee, the UPV, Observatorio de Humanidades y Tecnología, Prisa Radio, and Cadena Ser.
