Guthman Musical Instrument Competition

Guthman Musical Instrument Competition

The Guthman Musical Instrument Competition is one of the only competitions of its kind: an event dedicated to identifying the newest and greatest ideas in music. Every year, we invite musical inventors from around the world to share their creations and ideas about the future of music.

Originally designed to identify the next generation of musical instrumentalists, the Guthman Musical Instrument Competition has turned into one of the nation's premiere events for music technologists.

The result is an event that exposes new technologies and novel ideas to a community of musicians who are natural experimenters. The instruments we feature are a captivating mix of digital possibilities and traditional performances that transform how we perform and experience music.
