2013 Guthman Musical Instrument Competition
Share your ideas for the next generation of musical instruments at Georgia Tech’s Guthman Musical Instrument Competition.
An annual event to find the world’s best new ideas in musicality, design and engineering, Wired magazine has called the competition an “X-Prize for music,” and contestants have likened it to a TED Conference for new musical instrument designers.
Submissions are being accepted online until December 1, 2012. Preliminary and final performances will take place in Atlanta April 11-12, 2013, where contestants will battle for $10,000 in cash prizes.
This year, winners will be selected by an expert jury panel comprised of experimental performance artist Laurie Anderson, composer, performer and educator, David Wessel, and electronic musician and sound designer Richard Devine.
