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, electronic 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 committee through an application and audition process.
The Graduate Students from the Live Practicum, are putting together an event the Saturday, April 8th at 7 p.m., at the Sporting Club Russafa (Valencia). Una Noche de Contrabajo has been created to show you the versatility of the Double Bass instrument. You will have the pleasure to hear two local Valencian bands, Hugo Mas and Badlands, and one band coming from the United States, Satarra&Tabari (Berklee Graduate Students). They will be presenting us the different styles of the Double Bass and we are sure you will love it!
