On Wednesday, April 15, Berklee and the Electronic Production and Design Department will host the Boston stop on the Richie Hawtin 2015 CNTRL Tour. Richie Hawtin is one of the architects of what’s now thought of as EDM, and he has put together a special educational outreach program for select colleges in the United States. Berklee is a sponsor of this tour and we hope to give Richie and crew a warm welcome as they start the tour here in Boston.

There will be three events at Berklee that day, covering areas of interest for all students, as well, as a show at the Middle East in Cambridge that will feature Richie Hawtin and guests Matthew Dear, Matador and Ean Golden.

- From 12:00 noon until 4:30 PM in the old lobby of the 150 Mass. Ave building there will be a music technology marketplace, featuring some of the latest hardware and software from top manufacturers along with special discounts for Berklee students.

- From 1:00 PM to 3:00 in the Berklee Performance Center there will be a panel discussion on creativity, composition, and cutting edge tools and techniques used in electronic music, moderated by Electronic Production and Design Chair Michael Bierylo

- At 4:30 PM in 22 The Fenway, there will be a special electronic music production workshop. Seating for this event will be limited, so be sure to get there early.

Tickets for the evening show at the Middle East will be available for Berklee students with a special discount code.
