About Us:

FUSION is Berklee College of Music's global forum of writing, visual art, and music that engages notions of interconnectivity and interdisciplinary approaches to the arts. We publish high-quality literature, journalism, film/video, photography, and multimedia projects by our community as well as internationally recognized artists. We also invite essays on the rich relations between music and the other arts; translations; and works employing fusion as theme, concept, or inspiration. FUSION is a celebration of the arts, responding to E.M. Forster's charge, “Only connect!”
