Watch Georgia Tech’s Guthman Musical Instrument Competition


Called the X-Prize for music the Guthman Musical Instrument Competition pits multiple musicians and makers against each other at Georgia Tech’s Ferst Center for the Arts. A group of judges including Jazz great Pat Metheny will pick their favorites and you, the viewer, can jam along on your desk. The entrants include a unique home-brew system that lets pianists play the rhythm guitar, a huge sheet of metal that sounds like an orchestra, and an electric mbira.

All of the entrants are doing some amazing stuff in the musical space and it will be fun to see them perform.

You can watch the event live at 7pm Eastern/4pm Pacific.
