The Music For People & Thingamajigs Festival Is Looking For Strange Music

Music For People And ThingamajigsThe Music For People & Thingamajigs Festival – an annual event dedicated to promoting experimental music that incorporates made/found instruments and alternate tuning systems – is looking for some strange music.

Organizers of the event, scheduled for September 22 – 25, 2011, are looking for proposals from artists and composers.


Each year, MFP&T invites artists who design their own musical instruments to join in a festival of workshops, music making, and performances with the goal of reaching a large, diverse audience of all ages. It is also a festival where the public can participate in instrument building and tuning educational workshops, as well as hear unique sounds and compositions from up and coming artists.

Now in its 14th year, Music for People and Thingamajigs is a celebration of new and unusual explorations in music and performance. The three evening concerts and one daytime family event feature music using made and/or found instruments, alternate tuning systems and hands-on discovery

Proposals are due June 15th. See the thingamajigs site for details.

Note: If you’ve know of other upcoming events, you can add them in the Electronic Music Festivals & Events section of the forum.
