Music for People & Thingamajigs
The Music For People & Thingamajigs Festival is an annual event dedicated to promoting experimental music that incorporates made/found instruments and alternate tuning systems. 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. Past participants include Carla Kihlstedt, Walter Kitundu, Peter Whitehead, Brenda Hutchinson, William Winant, Laetitia Sonami, and many others.
Celebrating its 17th year in 2014, MFP&T is a celebration of new and unusual explorations in music and performance, featuring evening concerts, daytime family events and hands-on discovery.
