Hello Berklee Fam! My name is Harshit Jain, and I’m a music producer, audio engineer, and sound designer. I recently finished my Master’s in Music Technology, Production and Innovation at the beautiful Berklee Valencia campus in Spain.
Currently, I’m interning at Faraday Future as a Sound Designer, as part of the Berklee ICE Ambassador Program. Faraday Future is an American start-up technology company focused on the development of intelligent electric vehicles. Faraday Future was established in 2014 and is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. My internship here is 16 weeks long, and I’m writing this blog post 8 weeks in. I work with the UX/UI design team in the Digital Product department. My duties include designing sounds for the user experience of future products.
As a Berklee ICE Ambassador, I’m always trying to indulge myself in different projects and make the most out of my time here. The skills that I gained at Berklee have helped me tremendously in contributing to the company as a creative and technical individual. As musicians, we naturally learn the art of collaboration and working in tune with other people, which in my opinion is a very important life skill that helps me work seamlessly with others at FF.
My past 2 months at Faraday Future have been really exciting. The learning curve has been steep as I explore various aspects of a company that is building futuristic mobility solutions at a very fast pace. The work environment is open, full of ideas, interactive, and constantly pushing the boundaries. My coworkers are always open to hearing my ideas and respect my point of view, even though I’m new to the company and still adapting to its vision.
Most of the projects I’m working on are confidential, and hence, I’m not able to elaborate on them, but time here has been nothing short of exciting and astonishing. It’s hard to put into words what it feels like when you can see the future being built in front of you. That feeling keeps me motivated to work harder than the last day.
This opportunity wouldn’t have been realized without the efforts of Panos Panay and Nicole d’Avis at the Berklee ICE.
I’m excited to share more insight with you all in the coming weeks.
Thanks for reading! : )
