The Computer Music Department is hosting the first annual N SEME. The National Student Electronic Music Event was created by and for students, aiming to bring together the nation’s composers and performers currently studying in the ever-growing field of electronic music. We welcome students to share ideas and learn from an experience completely surrounded by peers. Although the composers, performers, judges, and coordinators are all students, everyone is welcome to join us for this exciting event.
There will be two concerts on Wednesday, November 2nd. One concert will be 5:30 and another at 8 with a break in-between for a reception.
Master of Music candidates Evan Combs and Griffin Cohen (BM ’11, Computer Music) were recipients of a 2011 Johns Hopkins Technology Fellowship Grant through the Center for Educational Resources. With faculty sponsor McGregor Boyle, they created the Peabody Computer Music Tutorial Series. Cohen was responsible for developing the “Interactive Moog,” a Flash application that allows users to learn more about the classic modular Moog synthesizer in Peabody’s Room 314C.
