Over at Instructables, they’re gearing up for their Art of Sound Contest:

Music is absolutely essential for creativity – it inspires new ideas, helps us to create and build, and provides a soundtrack for life.

That’s why we’ve teamed up with Zalytron, Create Digital Music, and Bleep Labs to bring you the Art of Sound Contest. Show us something amazing and music-related, and win an awesome set of hand-built custom speakers or a musical instrument kit!

This contest is open to any project that creates something beautiful with or around sound. Whether you’re into homemade/modified instruments, circuit-bending, speakers, sound activation, or anything else, this contest is for you. Simply create, modify, actuate, craft, decorate, enhance, display, amplify, or visualize sound, and tell us how and why you did it. It can be your take on a classic project, or something entirely new and unique – it’s up to you!

Now show us your original instrument, your tricked-out subwoofer, or your sound-responsive wall of LEDs! Be thorough, and document your project well so others can follow in your footsteps. Share your skills and experience to help inspire others, expand the possibilities of both sound and art, and win some fabulous prizes!

Enter for your chance to win one of the speaker sets above, plus more prizes!
