Hey guys, I hope your week has been amazing! For the first Fun Friday post today, I want to introduce you to a great part of the Berlin team, Melanie Koeppen. A Berlin native, Melanie joined the content team about two months ago! Please help me welcome her.
Howdy Melanie, how ya doing?
Hey. Hope, you’re alright.
What’s your role? What do you like about it so far?
My job role says Content Manager which basically means I take care for all the content that’s being uploaded. It’s like looking after little sheep making sure they find their place in the ‘Cloud, are happy, not hungry or anything and I sing them nursery rhymes when they happen to be sad. That’s actually what I like about it. I’m not an artist myself but I feel as connected to and responsible for the sounds as they are and I want to make sure their message gets out to people.
Where are you from?
I grew up in a smallish town close to Berlin and lived in several other places before I kind of came back to Berlin.
What kind of shows do you like going to?
Good ones :) but usually music gigs in particular. I got more and more picky over the past years about what I want to actually see. I like music that delivers emotions and that touches me. And I prefer smaller venues.
What do you like about Berlin so far?
It’s a metropolis with a quite slow pace which I quite like. I also often simply stroll through the streets and get lost. I like the way you can switch between areas where absolutely nobody is and areas that are packed with people within a couple of blocks.
Silent Portraits is my friend’s project and it’s just amazing.
This is a song from Amplifier’s last album and this is the next scheduled gig I want to go to.
So Melanie, what are some reasons that someone should join the SoundCloud team?
Thanks for the great interview Melanie! Welcome to the team :) You can follow her on SoundCloud! Make sure to say a friendly hello!
