We are excited to announce a one day Hackathon hosted by Music Hackspace during NIME 2014 Open Day on Friday 4th of July, at Goldsmiths Great Hall, Richard Hoggart Building.

Themed around assistive and adaptable musical interfaces that narrow down the barriers of participation, the Hackathon will feature challenges presented by Heart n Soul and Drake Music.

During the Hackathon there will also be talks, demos & performances by developers and music technologists on-stage.

When: Friday 4th of July (10:00-21:00). We will meet from 10:00am for welcoming and will give out the agenda to start with challenge presentations at 10:30am. Hack presentations, results and prices will start from 6pm.

Heart n Soul challenge:

“Can you find ways that a player can work with the simplest of control mechanisms, but still feel a real and potent sense of connection with the sound being created?

The challenge is to find a way to create the greatest expressivity of sound with the most minimal of input control from the player. This is an open ended challenge that we hope you’ll approach in all manner of ways.

The phrase minimal input control could also mean a range of things, from simple user interfaces to controls that can work with tiny movements or gestures”.

Prize: Moog Etherwave Theremini


Drake Music challenge:

“To design a musical device that can be easily configured/modified to make music making accessibility to all, including disabled musicians”.

Prize: Koma Elektronic Kommander
