    Hi all, I need to record an EPK for a college application and it has to be about four minutes, I can splice and put together songs, Im looking into some standards to play the melody and what not but i need some suggestions.

    What's appropriate will depend on what college, what the focus is, and how you are presenting yourself.

    Do you really want to do an Electronic Press Kit? What about the application process as they describe it here? http://www.berklee.edu/admissions/undergraduate

    Did I miss where they ask for a press kit?

    If this is an application for their degree program, have you checked out this? http://www.berklee.edu/admissions/audition

    You can prep for it here: http://www.berklee.edu/admissions/practiceexercises

    Are you shooting for the Jan. 15th deadline? You are running about 2 months late in prep, dude! Yipes! :atoz:
