Georgia Tech's Margaret Guthman New Musical Instrument Competition is an annual event aimed at identifying the world's next generation of musical instruments. Every year the competition serves as a showcase for unveiling the best new ideas in musicality, design, and engineering.
This is the 21st year of the Guthman competition: for 11 years it was a piano competition and 10 years ago became the new musical instrument competition that it is now. The first Guthman Competition began with eight high school students and one single piano in the Black Box theater. This year, the Guthman competition will be hosting 14 inventors from all over the world, including Mission Control, the Georgia Tech team that recently won the 5th Annual Moog Hackathon.
