String Theory is a production of design studio act3. Focusing on the passion guitar players have for their instrument, the series is an audio documentary that captures the essence of the festival experience, making it available for guitar aficionados and curious listeners alike. String Theory extends the reach of the instrument beyond the city limits, beyond club walls, letting listeners participate in the experience, and offering those lovers of the instrument access to living history, inspiration, and, of course, great guitar stories.

String Theory is produced by act3, a creative design studio based in St. Louis, Missouri, that develops customized story-driven communication.
