Music Hack Day – Boston, MA (Oct 16-17, 2010)Posted by Jonathan Southall on October 29th, 2010 – 1 Comment
“Music + software + hardware + art + the web. Anything goes as long as it’s music related.” 7digital participated in another weekend of hacking and experimentation around music and code. We opened up our music platform along with some other great companies like The Echonest, Last.fm, Sound Cloud, Lyric Find and Songkick, just to name a few. Developers converged near the MIT campus and had 24 hours to build mashups and applications. 7digital had five great hacks on our system and we gave a prize to Jeremy Sawruk who created FeedTunes – which takes popular music posts on Twitter, identifies them through MusiXMarch lyrics, matches to 7digital’s music catalog and makes a hot playlist!
