2019 Festival Event:

Guthman Musical Instrument Competition

A music, engineering, and tech mashup, the Georgia Tech Margaret 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. The Guardian called the competition "The Pulitzer of the New Instrument World," and The New York Times described the "special, otherworldly sound that you can feel permeating your soul" which became the hallmark of the competition. Fast Company explained how Guthman's "Futuristic Instruments will change how we make music," and Atlanta Magazine suggests that "at the Guthman Competition, innovative instruments just might predict the future of music."
