DIY Musical Instrument Tailgate Party

Stanford’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA) and Stanford Lively Arts are teaming up with the Thingamajigs group to host a drop-in afternoon of demonstrations, sharing, and performances by and for the Bay Area instrument-building community. Stanford artist-in-residence Trimpin will serve as honored guest and “Grand Marshal” of the day’s festivities, mingling with presenters and demonstrating some instruments of his own design.

CCRMA is a multidisciplinary facility where composers and researchers work together using computer- based technology both as an artistic medium and as a research tool. Thingamajigs is a genre-crossing nonprofit arts organization that promotes, presents, and performs music and other art forms created with made and found materials or alternate tuning systems. Now in its thirteenth year, the group presents programs and events throughout the Bay Area, including its annual Music for People and Thingamajigs Festival.

Please join us as a presenter/demonstrator or as an interested observer. Everybody is welcome.
