Music Hack Day is one of the most exciting, enjoyable and best loved hackathons happening right now. Programmers, designers and artists from all over the world come together to conceptualise, create and present their projects on music, software, mobile, hardware, art and the web all within 24 hours. Anything goes as long as it’s music related!
Since 2009, Music Hack Day has been celebrated on average once a month, somewhere around the world. This will be the first Music Hack Day Groningen and it is being hosted by Chordify and organised in collaboration with the Eurosonic Noorderslag showcase festival. A diverse range of music and technology enthusiasts at a high international level (developers, technicians, programmers, designers and artists) will be hacking on a project for 24 hours.
Chordify is looking for hackers…
Chordify is looking for individual musicians, developers, designers, or established hackathon teams to join Music Hack Day Groningen. Together they will reinvent the creation, production, distribution and discussion of music. The participating hackers will find new ways of reengineering music for the digital age. Fresh ideas will lead the way!
An international jury will nominate the five best concepts and the best Music Hack Day Groningen hacks will be rewarded with stunning prizes. As if this wasn’t enough,the teams nominated get to climb the stage to present their hacks on Friday 16 January 2015, at the International Eurosonic Noorderslag Conference.
…and for partners
Companies can also be part of Music Hack Day by presenting their technologies (e.g., APIs, software development kit, hardware, etc.) or as event sponsors or prize sponsors. Companies gain the opportunity to disseminate their technologies among the most active professionals coming from the makers and DIY communities at an international level. They get direct feedback from specialized end users as well as the opportunity to discover new uses for their technologies. By joining the Music Hack Day at Eurosonic Noorderslag, companies gain international visibility and receive great media attention.
