To learn more about musical performance with invented instruments, David Merrill and Ben Vigoda co-organized an artist residency that brought MacArthur Fellow and renowned experimental music improviser John Zorn to MIT in 2004. Over the course of three days Zorn led a group of students in structured improvisations with instruments of their own design. Later the same year, they co-coordinated 'Instruments from Beyond', a panel discussion about the impact of new musical instruments that featured MIT Music faculty and composer Evan Ziporyn and Grammy and Oscar award winning composer Tan Dun.
