The Waves Music Hackday took place for the very first time in 2015 and was a full success! It gathers people around music & technology, with very diverse backgrounds: whether you are a musician, artist, hacker, developer, thinker or hobbyist creator – join this hack day and meet other creative people to spin your ideas around the future of music & technology!

The spirit of the Waves Music Hackday is to get your heads together in teams to create new ideas – and build them at the same day! What you create is quite open – anything goes, as long as it is related to music!

A few examples:

• create a new musical instrument
• hack that new music app that you always wanted to have
• make a platform to engage artists and audience
• work on a musical performance
• make an engaging tool for audience interaction at live concerts
• combine software with hardware, hack those Arduinos, Raspberrys and Sonic Pi’s
• build on MusicBricks tools, combine & remix them to create something bigger
• make wearable audible fashion
• or simply create something mind-blowing that the world has never seen before 😉

You may find some inspirations from last year’s hacks and other Music Hack Days (but of course we don’t want you to copy those :-). There are prizes to win in several categories! Come and hack with us!
