Music Production and Engineering Projects 2013

by Berklee College of Music




Studios jumping, bass lines pumping. Crowded hallways, late night sessions, music and players spilling out from every room at all hours of the day and night. Hip-hop, jazz, rock, pop, salsa, bossa, R&B, alt-country, quasi-neo-pseudo-funk-swamp-boogie. If you’re looking for it, you’re likely to find it in the Berklee Studios at 136 Mass Ave. Both electrifying and all-consuming: this is the MP&E experience at Berklee College of Music. The tracks contained herein represent some of the best student work of the past year. They offer just a taste of the MP&E student experience, an ongoing collaboration between MP&E student producers and engineers, and some of the best talent from the department and across the college: players, songwriters, singers, arrangers, artists. Enjoy!
