I'm glad that VIBES gets to support the Peabody Hackathon competition, the "Hacking Harmony" event. Lena and I worked as volunteers, working around the Friedheim Library like those "geniuses" in the Apple stores. We performed two shows too, and I premiered my three-part suite with live violinists Ann Ching and Ran Huo.

Hackathon has been such a blast! I heard because of the low participation, every participating team has won a money award. It makes me want to compete there too... (Wait why am I writing this down)
For our performance on Feb 1st, we reinvited dancers and composers from the "Dance with Computer Music". Scott Li presented his new piece titled "Clouds" featuring the use of Wiimote controllers. That was a really cool piece! Hopefully I will get a hold of that video soon.
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!
