About the Event:
I'll be competing on behalf of the Belgium-based Percussa at the Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition. This is an annual event to find the world’s best new ideas in musicality, design, and engineering. In total, $10,000 in cash prizes will be awarded to the most exciting novel musical instruments and presented by Tech alumnus Richard Guthman in honor of his musician wife, Margaret…Twenty-two inventors, composers and designers from nine countries were selected to compete, from more than 50 entrie.
The event is a hotbed for musicians and artists who are pushing the boundaries of music performance. Wired magazine has called it the “X-Prize for music,” and contestants have likened it to a TED Conference for new musical instrument designers.
I'll be presenting from 2:20-2:40. I am listed on the schedule as "Bert Schiettecatte" as I'm representing Bert's company. Should the AudioCubes be selected for the finals, I will have a second performance at 7:00 PM. The finalists will be announced at 3:30 PM on Saturday.
