"noir", our third and largest scale concert to date, will be taking place Wednesaday, November 28th in the Center Street Performance Studio of the Peabody Conservatory. We will have a reception with food and noir entertainment at 5:30pm, with the concert proper beginning at 7:30pm. You can RSVP to the concert on Facebook here!
When we think noir, we think of the gritty, highly stylized Hollywood noir films of the 40s and 50s. Think pre-World War II Jazz, or the private detective that gets wrapped up in a convoluted murder case. As always, all interpretations are welcome, and all pieces will be considered for this concert's program. For interested composers, the deadline for submitting compositions is Tuesday, November 13th at midnight.
We are looking for a concertmaster for "noir", as well as our future concerts! The role of concertmaster carries a large amount of responsibility, and is a paid role for that very reason; you can find a list of concertmaster responsibilities linked here. If you're interested in being the concertmaster for noir, please contact us by Friday, November 2nd.
If you are interested for any reason, please don't hesitate to contact the VIBES staff at VIBESpeabody@gmail.com! Performances and concertmasters do not need to be Peabody students; we had Peabody alumni Rob Neubauer concertmaster our "COMPUTER MUSIC IN 3D" event!
All VIBES events are free and the reception has free food! Linked below is our poster for the event! We hope to see you there! :)
The host of each of our events is named the concertmaster. The concertmaster contributes a lot in planning their event, and the VIBES staff supports them as much as we can! Posted below is a list of the concertmaster's responsibilities for their event. The role of concertmaster certainly is a lot of work, bu the concermaster really gets to customize their event, helping make every VIBES event a unique experience. Please contact the VIBES staff at VIBESpeabody@gmail.com if you are interested in the role!
Our second concert was a great success! We had 2 returning composers, 2 new composers, and our concertmaster and wonderful guest, Rob Neubauer. Rob is a Peabody alumni, having earned his BM and MM in Computer Music, and was a wonderful host. He closed the show with an astounding setup including an upright bass, a plastic bin filled with toys, and a whole lot of processing. You can find more of Rob's work on his Soundcloud!
Below is a stereo YouTube recording of the entire concert below with audio that emulates the various surround sound systems peach individual piece used. For Tiantian Wang's piece, the visual Touhou component is included alongside her sound design and composition. You can find the program linked here!
Again, we have some fantastic photos taken by Peabody tenor and photographer Mofan Lai; several are in a gallery below. We will be doing more composer highlights of our wonderful student composers, so stay tuned!
We are ecstatic to announce our second concert, "COMPUTER MUSIC IN 3D", will be taking place Tuesday, October 16th, 2018 at the Peabody Conservatory. Linked below is our poster for the event!
Thinking about sound in three dimensions can lead to several interpretations of this concert's theme. Examples include pushing traditional two-dimensional sound systems (such as our 8.1 surround sound system in 309c) to their limit, or perhaps contemplating three dimensional representations of the sound itself. As with all our themes, all interpretations are welcome, and all pieces will be considered for this concert's program.
If you are interested in being involved with "COMPUTER MUSIC IN 3D" or with VIBES in general, please contact the VIBES staff at VIBESpeabody@gmail.com. For interested composers, the deadline for submitting compositions is Friday, October 12th at midnight.
All VIBES events are free and there will be a short reception following. We hope to see you there! :)
Thank you to all that came out to our first VIBES concert. We were especially happy that there were students from several different departments in attendants. We premiered several new works this concert; you may find the program by clicking here.
There is a YouTube recording of the entire concert below, followed by some wonderful photos taken by Peabody tenor and photographer Mofan Lai.
Look forward to a future post that goes into more detail about the composers and the works premiered!
VIBES is run by Peabody Computer Music students. This blog is to document each VIBES event's preparation, execution, and performances.
Thank you to Peabody Computer Music for supporting us!
