Belmont student Kerrick Crace was recently featured in an interview published on the Audio Engineering Society’s (AES) Student Blog highlighting his participation in the recent Student Recording Competition.
Originally from Atlanta, Crace moved to Nashville six years ago and enrolled in Belmont after taking a break to do “the artist thing.” Crace said he grew up playing and writing his own piano music since he was 4 years old, skills he picked up purely by ear. He went on to play guitar, bass and drums before seeing Intersteller and developing what he calls his purpose. “My goal in life is to learn how to work this way,” Crace said. “To cut through to the heart of a film to its most central and human element. I believe it’s the one thing I can do well while also helping someone else to enhance and develop their vision, which to me is everything. To me, it’s my purpose.”
Crace goes on to describe his entry for the Student Recording Competition, the last five minutes of the film “My Indian Rhapsody” of which Crace composed an original score. Working alongside his high school friend and Emerson graduate film student Abijeet Achar, Crace said the film was the “most creatively open film [he] had worked on to date.”
