Internships

My First 2 Months at Faraday Future

Hello Berklee Fam! My name is Harshit Jain, and I’m a music producer, audio engineer, and sound designer. I recently finished my Master’s in Music Technology, Production and Innovation at the beautiful Berklee Valencia campus in Spain.

Currently, I’m interning at Faraday Future as a Sound Designer, as part of the Berklee ICE Ambassador Program. Faraday Future is an American start-up technology company focused on the development of intelligent electric vehicles. Faraday Future was established in 2014 and is headquartered in Los Angeles, California. My internship here is 16 weeks long, and I’m writing this blog post 8 weeks in. I work with the UX/UI design team in the Digital Product department. My duties include designing sounds for the user experience of future products.

As a Berklee ICE Ambassador, I’m always trying to indulge myself in different projects and make the most out of my time here. The skills that I gained at Berklee have helped me tremendously in contributing to the company as a creative and technical individual. As musicians, we naturally learn the art of collaboration and working in tune with other people, which in my opinion is a very important life skill that helps me work seamlessly with others at FF.

My past 2 months at Faraday Future have been really exciting. The learning curve has been steep as I explore various aspects of a company that is building futuristic mobility solutions at a very fast pace. The work environment is open, full of ideas, interactive, and constantly pushing the boundaries. My coworkers are always open to hearing my ideas and respect my point of view, even though I’m new to the company and still adapting to its vision.

Most of the projects I’m working on are confidential, and hence, I’m not able to elaborate on them, but time here has been nothing short of exciting and astonishing. It’s hard to put into words what it feels like when you can see the future being built in front of you. That feeling keeps me motivated to work harder than the last day.

This opportunity wouldn’t have been realized without the efforts of Panos Panay and Nicole d’Avis at the Berklee ICE.

I’m excited to share more insight with you all in the coming weeks.

Thanks for reading! : )

Here’s What I’ve Learned

I have one week left. The nostalgia is already kicking in. Here’s one last post!

Although I did something literally every single day, all summer, I still know there is so much more to do in Los Angeles. Here, I felt like a tiny fish in a massive ocean, with endless opportunities and experiences to discover. I’m truly looking forward to my future career, and my experiences here have affirmed my hope that I will be successful in following my dreams.

Friday fun at Tunecore!! I wanted to get everyone in the office, but some of them snuck out before Katie got out her selfie stick..

So Much to Say, So Much to Learn

 Hey everyone,

Time is moving so quickly here. It’s crazy. I feel like there is so much more to learn! I mean, there is obviously so much more to learn, but it’s more that I don’t want to leave LA before I learn it! There are moments where I feel like the task I’m doing may not be teaching me anything, but then I get home, and I have so many thoughts and questions. My mind is racing constantly. Maybe it’s just me that’s crazy… hm. 

One of my bosses, Lucas Vidal, wrote the score for Fast & Furious 6, The Quiet Ones, Nobody Wants the Night, The Raven, and more!

My First Month Interning in Los Angeles

Hey everyone,

The picture above is me sitting in my office, on the phone with an important client. Just kidding. My supervisor and I thought it would be funny to start off my posts with a joke. I work in a cubicle, and don’t talk to clients. But hey, I still have two months left here 😉

I’m Christina, and I’m about to enter my last two semesters of school at Berklee. Crazy how time flies. Up until now, I was double majoring in Music Business & Film Scoring. Starting in the fall, I’ll officially be switched over to Music Business & Pro Music (focusing on film scoring and composition). I made the switch because while I love film scoring, and movie scores – they are one of the main reasons I decided to pursue music in college – I’ve learned a lot about myself in the last year. I’ve realized that I am not the type to be able to sit alone and write. I wish I was, but I am stimulated and excited by leading projects with a lot of moving parts and people. I love planning, coordinating and networking. Which is why I’m hoping to find my place in the film industry, but from a more behind the scenes role.
