The ElectroSpit wins the 2020 Guthman Competition
"For those of you that may believe that everything in music was already invented, centuries ago, we beg to disagree," Georgia Tech President Ángel Cabrera said in his opening speech to a capacity crowd at the Ferst Center.
With those words, he kicked off a show that no one in the audience is soon to forget.
This year's competition took a new direction by pairing each finalist's instrument with a virtuoso - a skilled musician from the Atlanta area. In brief performances together, they showed how new musical instruments and technologies can change how music is performed.
