Join in a celebration of the Bay Area’s thriving instrument inventor community! All proceeds benefit the Window Gallery at the Center for New Music.

The third annual SOUNDSMITHS, presented by Center for New Music, offers an opportunity to meet the designers, builders, composers, and performers of the Bay Area’s thriving community of instrument invention, and to take home artifacts, published materials, and one-of-a-kind instruments from these innovators!

The celebration begins July 17 with the launch the SOUNDSMITHS ONLINE AUCTION. Music fans can bid on an array of books, CDs, limited edition prints, handwritten scores, and original invented instruments. Contributions to the effort have come from throughout the community, including distinguished artists Bart Hopkin, Tom Nunn, Jon Raskin, and Daniel Schmidt, partnering institutions such as the Museum of Imaginary Musical Instruments, and emerging artists Taylor Chan, David Samas, and more.

Visit to view items and place bids! The auction closes on August 27 at 7 PM; winners can receive their items at the Closing Party, or make separate arrangements.

All proceeds support the Window Gallery at the Center for New Music, a 501©(3) nonprofit organization.

Gather with the musical makers who have made the San Francisco Bay Area a thriving community for inventors, builders and more, for generations. This community celebration, free to all, features special performances, food and drink, and a final opportunity to bid on auction items. Enjoy the current exhibit, “Parsing the Octave” by Dennis Aman, and help support the Window Gallery at the Center for New Music.
