August 1, Oakland. 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 larger audience than they might usually connect with. It is also a festival where the public can participate in instrument building and tuning educational workshops, as well as hear unique sounds and compositions from up and coming artists. Now in its 11th year, thingamajigs.org’s MFP&T Festival is the only annual event of its kind. Past participants include Karla Kihlstedt, Walter Kitundu, Peter Whitehead, Brenda Hutchinson, William Winant, and Laetitia Sonami.

This event features: Chris Brown, The Norman Conquest, Steve Port with Karen Celia Heil
