Already third year during fall semester course in performing art chair of Estonian Art Academy students created acoustical sound instruments. Course was instructed by Erik Alalooga. Main requrements were: instrument must be full-acoustic (no amplification), it must avoid similarities with prototypes and it must produce different and manually controlled tones. This year brought two new instruments and performers to the hall of fame:

Marianne Jõgi – Framarr

Henri Griin – Excelsibur

In January 2013 a composition workshop was hosted again by Pärnu Contemporary Music Days. During one week long workshop students researched acoustical qualities and playing techniques of their instruments. For this year´s composition workshop additional students were invited with other instruments. Workshop was instructed by musician and composer Andrus Kallastu. All the instruments were named and notated for final concert “Victory over the Sun” a reference to Alexey Kruchnych´s opera-libretto by the same name.
