Now in its 12th year, Music for People and Thingamajigs is a celebration of new and unusual explorations in music and performance. The three evening concerts and one daytime family event feature music created using made and/or found instruments, alternate tuning systems and hands-on discovery.

Past participants include Carla Kihlstedt, Walter Kitundu, Peter Whitehead, Brenda Hutchinson, William Winant, Laetitia Sonami, and many others.

10th Annual

21 Grand

 

  The mission of Thingamajigs is to develop and nurture the exploration of alternate materials and methods of creating sound, as well as promote collaborative efforts within other artistic disciplines not generally associated with festivals of music. With open workshops and performances, we welcome audiences/participants of all ages and backgrounds to join in a wonderful tradition started here in the Bay Area by such composers as Henry Cowell, Harry Partch, Lou Harrison, and John Cage.
