The first annual Guthman Musical Instrument Competition proved to be a very interesting place to be as hacked musical instruments competed for $10,000 in prizes. 60 people applied and 25 were chosen to show off their hacked together, strange, and whimsical instruments. There were all kinds of creations, from keyboard controlled motor cycle engines to tongue controlled synthesizers. We can’t imagine trying to pick some kind of a winner from the bunch this diverse.

Why write that? I like the motorcycle engine keyboard awesome. Wish there was video.
Follow the link to the wired article for videos. Several of the instruments have a video and an audio clip. look toward the right hand edge of the screen, below the description.
almost all of them sound like crap but they are pretty neat
The 4 string guitar was good.
