Pioneers Welcome

An Experience Like No Other

String^TEK is a community of string innovators pushing the boundaries of what is possible for merging technology with bowed string playing.

Our Story

Creative string playing is still in its infancy.  I wanted to create string^TEK as a resource for players pushing the boundaries and going beyond using electronics to merely imitate other instruments."

-Jacob Szekely




Our Team

Our exceptional faculty bridges the gap between musical styles, the production, recording, and performing worlds as well as the analog and digital divide.
