The Culminating Experience Project encompasses a year’s worth of work, education and experience accumulated during the time a student enters and leaves his or her designated program at the Berklee College of Music, Valencia Campus. It is meant to reflect on a real-world experience, which differentiates this paper from other graduate, research-based projects. In the Scoring for Film, TV and Video Games (or SFTV) department at Berklee, this project would typically be referencing an SFTV student’s journey to their final recording project with a 50+ piece orchestra at AIR Studios in London, England. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has delayed the annual SFTV trip to AIR Studios indefinitely. Because of this, the following focuses solely on the writing process and the creation of a realistic mockup that best represents my piece and my accumulation of knowledge at the Berklee College of Music.
