In this activity, a group of hackers (accompanied by artists) will have 24 hours to build the next generation of music applications. Web, mobile, software, hardware: anything goes, as long as it is related to music.
Music Hack Day will take place on 14 and 15 June in the Auditorium of the CCCB and will include 24 hours of hacking sessions, API workshops, the final presentations of the results and prizes for the best hacks.
One of the main new features this year is the creation of a specialized jury which will decide upon the three best works produced during the event, in three categories: technological innovation, originality and commercial potential.
The jury consists of:
Jordi Sellas, co-director and host of the programme "Generació Digital." Alexis Gilles, representing Google's New Business Development division. Marc Pitarch, musician (under the name of Koulomek) and a member of the Telenoika collective. Flappi Jiménez, product specialist (Earpro)
In collaboration with the UPF Music Technology Group
It is a very unusual instrument, created by graphic designer Adrian Shaughnessy in collaboration with Mute Records. It is a manual tablet, with no buttons, enabling the creation and sequencing of sounds based on digital manipulation on wire circuits.
Participants will receive help from John Richards and Stuart Smith, representatives of the Dirty Electronics brand, and the project will be supervised and sponsored by Daniel Miller, the head of Mute Records, who will be giving us a session as part of the Sónar music line-up.
