Berklee faculty member Val Jeanty will demonstrate her unique performance setup as a turntablist, drummer, and electronic music producer, consisting of drums, a DJ rig, sampler, and live effects processors. 

Also, learn about Sunhouse Drum Sensors as a part of Val’s workflow and performance setup. Sunhouse makes a revolutionary tool for music production and performance, which is a hybrid drum setup and an electronic drum kit in one.
