Tomas Henriques plays his Double Slide Controller, First Prize winner at the 2010 Guthman Musical Instruments Competition, held at Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology.
The annual competition is supported by the philanthropy of alumnus Richard Guthman in honor of his musical wife, Margaret.
“This event underscores our role as a center of innovation in music,” said Frank Clark, Chair of Georgia Tech’s School of Music. “Thanks to the Guthmans, this competition will expose new paradigms of expression year after year.”
“It was very interesting to meet all the participants and see the wealth of new ideas for new instruments that aim at breaking new frontiers in the performance of electronic music,” said Henriques. “Georgia Tech, with the philanthropic aid of the Guthman family, is doing a great job to the development of the field of music technology.”
