Terence Blanchard and Neil Leonard

What happens when you pair a group of jazz composers with modern electronic musicians? Adventurous artists have always been inspired by new technologies, and in the spring of 2016, Terence Blanchard and Neil Leonard will work with a group of students from Berklee’s Electronic Production and Design and Jazz Composition departments to explore new possibilities for bringing together these rich musical languages. Blanchard has stretched the boundaries of jazz into modern film music while Leonard has pioneered the use of electronics and multimedia in jazz improvisation. Together with a group of select Berklee students, they will present an evening of music that will inform and inspire.
