Dr Maria Zarza joins the "Shifting the Conversation Series" to address sexuality after trauma in the context of Sexual Assault Awareness Month.

This workshop, set to happen in B61, will bring awareness on how sexism and violence against women, including emotional and sexual abuse, affects women's sexuality, the intimacy with others and the acceptance and joy of their own body (our body, our sex),

This conversation will provide students with a safe space to reflect on the potential consequences of lasting emotional pain following any type of abuse against women and offer resources to overcome such trauma.

POSTPONED: In Conversation with Maggie Rogers

In Conversation with Maggie Rogers
POSTPONED: This event has been postponed. No date is set for rescheduling, but we hope to host Maggie on her next visit to Boston.

Moderated by Erin Barra, Associate Professor, Songwriting

Join us for an intimate conversation with visiting artist Maggie Rogers. “Alaska”, the producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist's debut single, charted in Spotify’s Viral 50 in 40 countries and hit #1 in 23 countries. With more than 20 million global streams to-date on Spotify, it earned Rogers a place on the Spotify Best of 2016 and set the stage for widespread international acclaim.

An unfinished version of her song “Alaska” introduced Rogers to an unexpectedly wide audience. The young artist, who grew up playing banjo in Maryland, was working on her music at The Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU. She played an early version of the song during a Masterclass taught by Grammy Award-winning producer Pharrell Williams. After it was posted on YouTube, acclaim began pouring in from a dizzying number of media outlets, including Pitchfork, Slate, NPR, BBC, The Washington Post, Nylon, Stereogum, and more. Spin declares the song “blends folk, electronic, and pop music sensibilities to form an entirely new hybridized sound,” while Paste calls it “hauntingly beautiful.” Maggie's debut EP Now That The Light Is Fading was subsequently released in February 2017 via Capital Records.

Rogers will visit during a stop on her first-ever North American headline tour, which sold out more than two months in advance of its launch.

Brass Recording Techniques

Although the quality of today's virtual brass libraries is very high, recording brass players live can be a rewarding way to achieve natural sounding parts. In this workshop, we will record solo instruments and small brass ensembles, looking at methods applicable to working in orchestral settings. Along the way we will look at some of the basic equipment needed to record in both project studios and at remote locations, as well discussing microphones and miking techniques.

April marks Sexual Assault Awareness Month and we are incredibly proud to present this month´s activities aimed at increasing awareness on this important topic as designed by our very own SAAVE team in Valencia (Student Allies for Anti Violence Education) aka Clara Maurer, Krysse Barbosa and Nile Seabrooks together with Keegan Fitzpatrick, Lily Williams, Eli Gauden, Brian Difrancisco, Jacqui Muniz and Allegra Carter. 

 

Supported by our very own faculty members Catalina Millán and Dr Maria Zarza, and the Student Affairs / Diversity and Inclusion team, the SAAVE Valencia team has been doing tremendous work on the lead up to this month and has put together a solid month of programs with the aim of addressing specific areas within this fight: from continuing our focus on empowering women through a community workshop around “The Vagina Monologues” in the context of today´s Journaling club, and tomorrow´s “Queens of Pop” Galileo caf-show; to the "Canta por Alanna" concert at Radio City on Saturday April 1 which aims to raise funds for ALANNA: a local association helping women who have been victims of domestic abuse. Thursday's concert at Galileo also supports Alanna’s cause.

 

Three important conversations will continue our series of activities the following days at the Valencia campus, addressing topics such as the psychology of trauma, sex trafficking, and hyper-masculinity and music. And our month of activities will culminate on a free showcase at La Fábrica de Hielo on Wednesday April 26. Submissions to perform at this showcase are still being considered. Just email your proposal to saavevalencia@berklee.edu asap!

 

Last but not least, Berklee has launched a voluntary and confidential survey on sexual misconduct, harassment and discrimination with the aim of using the results to further enhance the health and safety of our community and to foster a non-discriminatory environment. We ask all Valencia students to consider submitting their responses to this Equity Survey that should not take more than 20 mins to complete. The survey will be open to responses until Wednesday May 3

 

We sincerely hope you consider participating / joining in one or several of these activities on our campus, as we believe these to be conducive to continuing our efforts to build a strong, socially responsible community. Thanks SAAVE team for putting this very important program together.
