11/2/2011- 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.
12/12/2010- Graduate students Yi Wang, Evan Combs, and Patrick McMinn will each have a composition performed at the SEAMUS 2011 conference in Miami, Florida this January. Wang’s piece is entitled Talking Ocean, Combs’ piece is entitled A Short Stop for vibraphone and electronics, and McMinn’s piece entitled The Middle Place for trumpet, disklavier, and interactive electronics. Patrick McMinn’s piece was a finalist in the ASCAP/SEAMUS Student Competition.
