Dave Fiuczynski e Berklee Global Jazz Institute

Vinicius SaVinícius Cavalieri de Sá Coutinho, born in São Paulo on March 8, 1992, is a Brazilian guitarist and composer. 

Nessa semana venho falar sobre dois eventos interessantes que irão ocorrer na Berklee. Como guitarrista e apreciador de música “estranha”, preciso destacar um destes eventos, que é o seguinte: Microtonal Research with Dave Fiuczynski.

Dave é mais conhecido como o guitarrista e líder das bandas Screaming Headless Torsos e KiF. Também é bem conhecido por sua intensa e longa pesquisa sobre música microtonal e elementos musicais do Oriente Médio. Ele se considera um “guitarrista de jazz que não quer tocar apenas jazz”. Seu estilo de música é díficil de descrever, misturando elementos de Rock, Jazz, música microtonal e ritmos que se encontram na música indiana e turca.

Berklee Valencia Global Studies program student: Ryan McGonagill

Hey everyone. My name is Ryan McGonagill. I’m a 6th semester student from Carlsbad, New Mexico. I’m a classical piano principal majoring in Music Business with a focus in Marketing. I came to Valencia to be apart of the first Global Studies Program so that I could concentrate more on International Marketing and Public Relations within the music industry. This semester I’ll be giving you an insight into what it’s like studying abroad at Berklee Valencia.
