About Music Hack Day

The Challenge Music is becoming more digital every day. And Music Hack Day is the stage to experiment with its changes and develop ideas for the future of music. Join us to reinvent the making, producing, distribution and discussion of and about music. Your ideas will lead the way!

The Mission Music Hack Day is a 2-days event designed to find new ways in reinventing and reengineering music for the digital age. The hackathon will bring together creative developer, designers, musicians and product visionaries. Music Hack Day is the perfect environment to test your idea, find a team help to execute and take the first steps to launch your own project. Join us if you are an individual musician, developer, designer, non-technical or established hackathon team.

The Reward The Music Hack Day takes place during Berlin Music Week in September. Prizes, an international jury and the praise from the startup and music community are waiting. Already got an inspiring idea? Post it at our Hackerleague site so others can see and join your team.

Why did music technology evolve but drum sounds got stuck in the past? Let's envision how to develop new rhythm patches and generate new drum sounds?
I would love to realize a visual interaction with the audience and fans during a live performance or DJ set. This could be a great bi-directional experience for an event or a show.
How can you turn the computer into a more reactive instrument that gives musicians new and wider possibilities to express themselves?
