During the last Music Hack Day(and in the couple of days after that) in Amsterdam we've made this video about Music Hack Day. After this we started a competition on SoundCloud and added on of the great tracks submitted to the competition. Thanks a lot to @marktheis (soundcloud.com/marktheis) for making the winning soundtrack!
A little bit about Music Hack Day: The goal of Music Hack Day is to bring developers, designers, hackers and music geeks together to build the next generation of music applications in just 24hrs. Web apps, mobile, software, hardware, art… anything goes as long as it’s music related.
