A communal music hack day has been planned for the weekend of September 18-20 in Berlin. Usually, we would file this away under music nerd event news, but in truth, this seems like quite a technologically pleasing way to spend the weekend.
The first Music Hack Day took place in London at The Guardian offices on July 11-12, 2009; it brought together 200 participants and 10 companies, including SoundCloud, Last.fm, RjDj and Songkick. After a long night of coding, about 30 new websites, projects, instruments and software saw the light of the day.
The Music Hack Day website states, “The main goal of the event is for participants to rapidly prototype and build new projects, working through the night to complete and present them the following day. They have only this weekend to conceptualize, build, & present their projects.”
The Berlin event at the picturesque Radialsystem V is totally free and non-commercial and is limited to just 150 spaces, open all day and night.
What are you waiting for? Shout/type/repeat after me, “Music hackers unite!”
