Description: 

There is a new crop of musical instruments that forgo the old world of wood, strings, brass, reeds and horsehair in favor of new high-tech sensors, sensors that promise to capture the subtleties of human performance gestures as well as or better than traditional instruments. Among these instruments is a very creative design from the UK called the Eigenharp:

On this evening, the Eigenharp will be demonstrated and discussed by two representatives of the company. Also, David Wessel will demonstrate his SLABS instrument.

And Roger Linn will demonstrate his LinnStrument.
