Interlude Consortium was awarded top prize in the Georgia Tech Center for Music Technology's annual Margaret Guthman Musical Instrument Competition by Tech alumnus Richard Guthman in honor of his musician wife, Margaret. The French group's instrument, called "MO," enables sophisticated music-making with everyday objects such as kitchen utensils and soccer balls. See a demo. MO was presented by Frederic Bevilacqua, a researcher at IRCAM in France, and Julien Bloit, with sounds from Andrea Cera. The easy-to-use software makes MO a prime tool for youth music education, and is being tested in that area. MO was created in the framework of the Interlude project by a consortium of six organizations: IRCAM (coordinator), NoDesign, DaFact, Grame, Atelier des Feuillantines and Voxler. It is supported by ANR (French National Agency for Research) and Cap Digital. Phonotonic also is a contributor.
