Earlier this month The Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology announced the winners of Margaret Guthman New Musical Instrument Competition. Sharing third prize were The Loud Objects (live circuit construction as performance art, seen in this 2007 video) and Steve Litt's The CrudBox (amplified step sequencer as sophisticated rhythm box, seen in this 2009 video.)  In second place was Kieth McMillen's K-Bow, explained and demoed here.

With two independent slides, two hand controllers, utilizing sensor technologies and Max/MSP software, the first prize went to The Double Slide Controller, a distant descendant of the trombone, developed by composer/researcher Tomás Henriques.
