TONIC Seminar at Summer NAMM
This summer in Nashville, representatives from the Tonal Innovation Center (TONIC), a project funded mainly by the European Social Fund, will be presenting and opening discussions about the use of sustainable materials for musical instruments. The project is tasked to create a more consistent, environmentally and ecologically friendly recyclable tone material for use in the manufacturing of musical instruments.
Interested parties at Summer NAMM 2011 are encouraged to register and attend the seminar on Friday morning, 8:00AM to 10:00AM, Room 213, 2nd Floor, Nashville Convention Center.
This two-hour seminar will cover the highlights from the 2010 International Seminar – ‘Exploring Sustainable Materials,’ the reasons or market drivers on why we need to use alternatives to exotic tone woods, from the latest government legislation, to the scarcity of supply to changing demand with a growing awareness from players. The panel will discuss what choices are available now and the emerging alternatives including Natural Fiber Composites.
TONIC will also be requesting support from the music industry for the 2nd International Seminar in Finland, with a welcome Reception on Wednesday 14th September 5pm with the seminar and workshops from Thursday 15th to Friday 16th September
