DISCOVER-i: Crossroads

Come join us at DISCOVER-i: Crossroads on Wednesday, November 29 at Sala Russafa! Entrance is free and on a first-come-first-serve basis; no tickets are required!

DISCOVER, the concert series that lets you uncover the best new performing talent at Berklee, and Innovation: En Vivo!, the concert series that allows you to experience the future of music now, have come together to bring you the new DISCOVER-i concert series.

DISCOVER-i is based on the collaboration between students from our four graduate programs; Contemporary Performance (Production Concentration); Music Production, Technology, and Innovation; Music Business and Global Entertainment; and Scoring for Film, Television, and Video Games, as well as the undergraduate community from the First Year Abroad and Berklee Study Abroad programs.

DISCOVER-i features outstanding performers with innovative techniques and creative presentations, always with the highest production standards, to bring you the most moving and memorable musical experiences. Because our students have a wide range of specialties and stylistic backgrounds, a DISCOVER-i concert evening can be very diverse. Concerts can be expected to include the highest level of musical, visual and production quality, including but not limited to solo acts to large group, electronically based compositions, video mapping, live DJs, audio/visual installations, acoustic/electric collaborations, and nearly every part of the show includes some form of visuals/projection.

DISCOVER-i concerts will be based on a theme, and students will be encouraged to submit applications which reflect that theme. The first concert this year is DISCOVER-i: Crossroads. Featured groups will be student-led bands, chosen by a committee through an application and audition process.

Quotes: John Stein… the poet of the classical jazz guitar (Dick Crockett “The Voice” — 88.7fm) What a gift this man has. He’s in an elite class: a mere handful of jazz guitarists who consistently put taste above chops and flash. John Stein has the ability to say so much more with less effort than most of his contemporaries can muster. (Wayne Everett Goins — Kansas City Jazz Ambassadors Magazine) Stein has the touch — a bond with the guitar that only comes from deep spiritual dedication to those strings. Playing a collection of songs so sweetly is a sign of pure musical intelligence. (Layla Macoran — Jazz Inside New York)
John Stein will be on tour in California, USA, later this semester: John Stein with the Dave Bass Trio John Stein, guitar Dave Bass, piano Ben Kopf, bass Jack Stanfill, drums Bird & Beckett 653 Chenery Street in San Francisco’s Glen Park Saturday, 28 October Concert time: 7:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. The Sacramento Jazz Coop Antiquite 2114 P Street Sacramento, CA 95816 https://www.eventbrite.com/e/john-stein-with-the-dave-bass-trio-tickets-35796640716 Monday, 30 October Concert time: 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. The Sequoia Room 444 North Main Street Fort Bragg, CA 95437 Saturday, 4 November One show: 8 p.m. with two 40 minutes sets

Berklee Nights at Hard Rock Café in Barcelona – Josh Stanley

Singer-songwriter Josh Stanley was born on February 9th 1996 and has lived in the principality of Monaco his whole life. Currently studying at Berklee College of Music’s campus in Valencia with concentrations in Electronic Production and design as well as song-writing, Josh has developed a unique sound for his music. Blending Electronic Dance Music with acoustic instruments is Josh’s vision. Having the resources and connections to bring the project to life he decided it was time to share his vision to the world. Pitching his project to fellow Berklee scholars who were quick to join, Josh Stanley headlined their first gig in Spain after only two weeks of rehearsal. The arrangement of his EDM demos found on his website to the band are what give the performance a very unique sound by keeping the power of a Dance song mixed with the Acoustic/rock energy of a band.
