The Path Forward: Creativity in New Instruments
Tuesday, November 17, 2020 | 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. EST
Facebook Live with Georgia Tech Arts

Georgia Tech's Guthman Musical Instrument Competition is an annual event aimed at identifying the world's next generation of musical instruments and unveiling the best new ideas in musicality, design, engineering, and impact.

As the 2021 Competition enters its next phase, we’re bringing together a panel of experts to share their work in musical instrument and interface design and to consider big questions in the field. Grace Leslie (professor in the Georgia Tech School of Music and director of the Brain Music lab) will moderate the conversation between Peter Kirn (founder and editor of CDM, a 2021 Guthman Competition partner), Roger Linn (musical instrument designer and 2019 Guthman Competition judge), and Raghavasimhan Sankaranarayanan (Georgia Tech music technology PhD candidate). Join us for a thought-provoking and wide-ranging discussion presented by Georgia Tech School of Music and Georgia Tech Arts!

You can also participate in the Guthman Musical Instrument Competition by casting your vote for the People’s Choice winner from among the finalists!

Industry and artistic experts consider the future of musical instrument design.
