Midem hack day will welcome 30 developers from around the world who will have 48 hours to build brand-new applications for the music industry. The call for ideas is open to all midem participants and runs until Jan. 4. The best ideas will be picked by the music hack day organizers, and those chosen will outline their ideas in person to the developers at midem. At the end of the event, the applications developed will be presented to the public.
The music hack days are a reflection of the great creativity and innovative spirit that abounds in the tech community when it comes to music. They offer a glimpse into the music industry’s future, and the success of midem hack day 2011 illustrated this. Ten apps were invented, including the SoundCloud site Takes Questions, which went on sale shortly after midem. Emerging from the encounter between singer/songwriter Imogen Heap and developers, Takes Questions is a response to artists’ wishes to communicate directly with their fans.
