Department Researchers Reach Semifinals in International Musical Instruments Competition (Expired)

Two researchers from the Department of Computer Science reached the semifinals of an international competition to identify the most promising ideas for musical instruments.  Brett Park, a Ph.D. student in our department, and Dr. David Gerhard, one of our faculty members, were ranked as one of 20 semifinalist teams in the Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition in Atlanta, Georgia.   There were a total of 70 or more teams from around the world.  Unfortunately, their team did not reach the finals.  For a video of their presentation of the Rainboard, a novel computer-based instrument they have designed, please see:
