MARK YOUR CALENDARS!
Talk about dedication! Everard came here all the way from Mexico, JUST to become an SAE Chicago Student. His love for music started at the ripe age of 12, when he first began composing. His mother, as his cheerleader, raised him to sing/play piano. His true love for the craft came when he began learning music theory. Everard is one INSANELY amazing producer and we are so proud to call him an SAE certified student.
What are your influences? Everything and everyone! Different times in my life determine different influences. I first discovered dance music with Paul Van Dyk & grew up listening to Infected Mushroom.
What were your first Chicago experiences like? Getting out of the subway station with all my bags not knowing where on earth I was going. Luckily, Chicagoans are super nice and I was able to find my way to campus.
Favorite Program? I am definitely a Logic guy but I fell in love with Pro Tools and Ableton!
Best Thing About SAE Chicago? The warmth/kindness and the outstanding knowledge of each teacher.
Currently under construction in Canyon Lake, TX is Firefly Studios, the newest addition to the studios of SAE New York Graduates. Helmed by SAE graduates Kelleigh Drennon and Dan Flynn, the studio is set for a January 2014 open.
Built on a large plot of land outside Austin, the studio will also house a Photography Studio, Concert Venue, and Apartment. “The goal of the studio is to make it so that an artist can come in, record an album, have a photo shoot, shoot their first music video, and perform a concert all without leaving the premises.”

Courtesy of our friends in Brussels, comes an ambitious project that seeks to connect SAE students worldwide. The project, titled SAE CAPE (an acronym for Collaborative Audio Production Experiment), is an SAE-branded spin-off of a project that has existed on the Womb Forums for several years.
This particular project allows SAE students to network with other students from across the globe, and exchange ideas on business opportunities and creative projects. There will also be a competition between teams, which will be composed randomly from the lists of sign ups. Anyone from SAE can sign up for this initiative before Dec. 15, and should provide their full name, campus, position, available roles, preferred genre and skill level so they can be assigned a team and a role.
