Music Hackday London Coming Sept 4-5

Buying Choices

Music Hackday - a weekend of music hacking - is coming to London Sept. 4-5, 2010. 

Here's what organizer Dave Haynes has to say about it:

Music Hack Day returns to London, where it all began, to explore and build the next generation of music applications. It's a full weekend of hacking in which participants will conceptualize, create and present their projects. Music + software + mobile + hardware + art + the web. Anything goes as long as it's music related.

Examples of the hacks coming out of last year's event include:

  • Music Zeitgeist - a Wordle visualisation of the music lyrics for the last 6 decades.
  • MusicBore - plays you music and tells you ALL about it, with information from the BBC,, Linked Data and other sources.
  • SpaceBass - a retro scrolling shooter where gameplay modifies music and music modifies gameplay in a glorious feedback loop.
  • TrippyAudioWaves - a bunch of 1-inch square circuit boards, each producing a drone sequence of musical pitches that sound nice together. When you wave your hand over them, the effect is a wave of different droning pitches that follow your hand (and sound trippy!)
  • CloudPost - a Mac desktop audio uploader for SoundCloud. It integrates the users address-book & allows fast private sharing of tracks. With a last minute hax0r extension, it also lets you save music directly from any music app (e.g. Garageband) directly to SoundCloud.
  • Theremag - a theremin emulator running on an Android device, using the built-in magnetometer and a magnet for control.
