C4DM Report: Audio & Music Hackathon London

Audio and Music Hackathon London, Queen Mary University of London, Saturday 18 July – Sunday 19 July 2015, London, UK.

The Centre for Digital Music (C4DM) organised the Audio and Music Hackathon, which had over 50 participants and about 15 hacks. According to the organisers, the event was a big success. The event was sponsored by HARMAN, Abbey Road Red, Big Bear Audio and AES.

The Audio and Music Hackathon is a hacking session in which participants conceptualize, create and present their projects. Anything goes as long as its music and/or audio related. This is a standard hackathon format with a few twists. The event took place during the day on Saturday 18 July and Sunday 19 July, not 24 consecutive hours. It ended with a showcase event, and prizes were awarded by the event’s sponsors. Harman provided some very nice hackable wireless loudspeaker systems, and the organisers also provided hackable instruments based on the BeagleBone.

For further details about the event, please read the post on the C4DM website.
