MIT Celebrates Innovation In Music

It’s one of the many pieces of music presented at the MIT FAST festival, a festival of of art, science and technology, which is kicking off the weekend of Feb. 5 and running for three months.

Tod Machover is a media lab professor at MIT and is organizing the festival. He joined Morning Edition Friday to talk about some of the musical innovations that have come from MIT scientists.
