Applications Open For The Berklee India Exchange
12 May 2016
After a successful debut set of music clinics in Delhi and Mumbai last year, the Berklee India Exchange is heading back to the subcontinent this June for its second edition in Chennai and Bangalore. The exchange is a collaboration between Chennai based label and audio/visual production house EarthSync (co-founders of the IndieEarth XChange, 2015 edition reviewed here) and the Berklee College of Music, Boston.
The exchange is open to musicians from across India. The application deadline is 16 May, so send in your applications on time if you’re interested.
The Berklee India Exchange was founded to encourage collaboration between India and Berklee students. This year’s edition in Bangalore will be hosted by Nathaniel School of Music in Bangalore from 12-13 June and at the KM College of Music and Technology (founded by the A.R. Rahman Foundation) in Chennai from 15-16 June.
The theme of the exchange is music technology in performance and production, and the clinic will be holding a series of workshops, master-classes and panels, presented by highly distinguished faculty from Berklee College of Music. The two-day sessions aim to equip students with an array of technical, practical and theoretical skills while examining the concepts and practices currently prevalent in the digital music industry today.
Speakers from the Berklee faculty include Emmy award winning composer Stephen Webber and senior VP for innovation, strategy and technology at Berklee, David Mash.
