CHAIRPERSON OUTREACH COMMITTEE (MCAI)
Viveick is the Chairperson (Outreach Committee – MCAI) and is committed to spreading awareness among the musical fraternity and literally reaching out to them and empowering them. His brainchild “MASTERSESSIONS” which has so far featured renowned speakers such as Achille Forler, Shirley Singh, Priyanka Khimani and Viveick himself has grown in popularity and become a huge hit with composers in the valuable insights provided.
Viveick has pioneered the progressive thought process in MCAI, helping the organization grow merely beyond its traditional roles of dispute resolution, copyright battles and legal cases to the empowerment of composers on a different plane. Keeping a strong focus on education, he believes that “A composer who is aware of his rights, is a composer who will build a strong community”
He is also a musician and composer, straddling both worlds with equal ease. Trained under the Carnatic tradition on the majestic percussive instruments mridangam and kanjira, Viveick uses his classical roots to compose music that moves between many styles.
His work has won him several awards, from the MOST MINDBLOWING MUSIC VIDEO AWARD at AVIMA in 2009 for ‘Snake in the City’, to Best Folk Fusion Artist Award at the Radio City – Freedom Radio Awards in 2013 for his single ‘Quest’.
Over nearly 2 decades as a performer and composer, Viveick has toured and collaborated with musicians from all over the world.
He represented India at the Commonwealth Concert Tour in 2002 with Music director, Courtney Pine and other well-known musicians from the Commonwealth nations.VIEW ALL SPEAKERS
