Production Projects 2005 CD
Welcome to the world of Berklee's Music Technology Division: mtcd:2005
From the booklet:
This CD collects the Music Technology Division's most impressive projects of the year, the work of student composers, songwriters, arrangers, producers, performers, engineers, designers, and mixers. Throughout the year, the division's faculty members submit worthy projects from their students and then participate in an always painful selection process, reducing a hundred submissions down to the handful that represent the highest achievements of the division.
This collection shows Berklee's diverse educational community functioning in an ideal way, combining students from every corner and edge of the college's four divisions. Meeting in studios and labs, their work together is developed and captured and shared. The music here reflects the efforts and talents of the students and their teachers as they collaborate in Berklee's unique environment, exploring and experimenting, examining the rich musical history of the world, and moving toward emerging musical frontiers and horizons. From the international to the intergalactic, this work displays the curiosities and appetites of newly formed artists late in their formative years, aching to test themselves outside the classroom.
Many Berklee graduates move on into the professional world, finding their way in a world that has always been difficult and competitive. The college is proud of its many alums who earn awards and accolades all over the world. But we are no less proud of those whose work provides deep personal satisfaction and rewards that are unique to each individual. Many students achieve their first recorded experiences in the labs and studios of the Music Technology Division, and this annual collection is often the first opportunity the contributors have to see their work captured and honored for exellence.
Join us in applauding these students for their hard work, their exceptional talent, and their contribution to the division and te college. And most of all, enjoy listening to mtcd:05.
