Insider’s Scoop Backstage at Electric Daisy Carnival

By Edward Ma

more EDCLast month, I had the amazing opportunity to attend Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in New York with my classmate Kim Barbosa as Heavy Rotation Records (BPMI) representatives for our artist Glow Team.

Berklee Indian Ensemble: Have you met Sanjeeta?

Sanjeeta sits down in front of me, eyeing my chocolate muffin. Before she can reach out and take a bite, I grab the muffin and keep it close to me.

1048496_10153001286015226_20759901_o“I just want a bite!” she says, laughing. With Sanjeeta, it’s never just a bite. But then again, that’s what makes her so special – her ability to set her mind on something and then go after it. Be it the numerous opportunities she’s had at Berklee or the numerous “bites” of food she’s had from me over the last two years, Sanjeeta Bhattacharya has never missed a chance to seize the day! A 7th semester Performance major with voice as a principal instrument, she never fails to impress. Inspired, I want to hear her story and what brought her from Delhi to Boston.

国際色豊かなバークリー

こんにちは。今回のブログでは、バークリーの特色の1つである国際的なコミュニティについてご紹介します。学生のほぼ半数が留学生であるバークリーでは、一般教養の科目で色々な言語や、色々な国の文化、音楽の歴史について学ぶことができます。ジャズやロックなどアメリカ系の音楽に留まらず、中東、アジア、ヨーロッパ、南米などなど、まさに世界中の音楽の演奏を学ぶことができる合奏(アンサンブル)の授業が、一週間に400以上に渡って開催されています。

作曲や編曲の授業では、他国の音楽について取り組むこともできますし、自国の音楽の理解を深めることももちろんできます。

Soya Soo 今日は、私が何度かコラボレーションをさせてもらった、マレーシア出身でMusic Production and Engineering専攻を卒業した、Soya Soo (Yew Ping Soo)さんをご紹介します。

現在LAでキャリアを築いているSoyaさん(https://soundcloud.com/soya_soo)は日本の音楽やアニメ文化に傾倒が深く、良い影響を受けているそうです。バークリー在学中から精力的に課外製作に取り組んでいました。私も、色々な国(マレーシア、韓国、インドネシア、台湾、オーストラリア、ノルウェイ、トルコ、日本など)のミュージシャンがコラボレーションする彼のプロジェクト”你YOU by Julia Wu”で、バックコーラスのアレンジをさせていただきました。

今回は、Soyaさんへのインタビューをご紹介します。
