Recently Shaina and Eclecta Quartet got a unique assignment: To score and perform in a keynote presentation with an IBM executive at the upcoming #think2019 Conference in San Francisco. Shaina worked on the vision and music with their team for about a month, and the we had a day of rehearsals with the execs before performing it to a live (and huge broadcast) audience. We were really happy with the result! Thanks to IBM for having the vision to use music as a metaphor and for bringing us onboard to help drive it home! Watch the full presentation here!

Many know of Shervin Pishevar as a serial entrepreneur, venture capitalist, angel investor, founder at Sherpa Ventures, and all-around badass in the tech industry. What many don’t know is that he has a knack for music composition as well. Last night, we had the opportunity to perform his original composition, Cleopatra, for an intimate audience in San Francisco.

The song was co-written with Yvette Holzwarth; he describes his creative journey here.

We were honored to get the call and hope to perform Cleopatra again. Thanks, Shervin, for having us!
