David Updated: Announcing Music Hack Day in Berlin

Mark your calendars and join us for a full weekend of hacking during the first German Music Hack Day on September 18/19/20 at Radialsystem V in Berlin.

In July, a group of more than 200 music techheads gathered at the Guardian offices in London for an overly successful first Music Hack Day. After a long night of coding, about 30 new websites, projects, instruments and software saw the light of the day – we’ve blogged about a bunch of them before: Citysounds.fm, the iPhone Music Visualiser and SoundDrop. Click here for more hacks from that night.

So now it’s time to get everyone together in one of the world’s most important cities for music: Berlin. We want hackers to code and music companies to showcase their API’s and products people can hack on and hopefully at the end of the weekend we’ll see a whole lot of new music awesomeness.

Confirmed partners so far: Ableton, De:Bug, Tape.tv and of course us.

The event is totally free and non-commercial and we would like to keep it this way. We’re still looking for companies interested to sponsor breakfast, lunch or dinner as well as soft drinks and some beer. If you’d like to contribute, please contact us. Any help is greatly appreciated and will ensure that every participant can attend at no charge. Here’s what’s open and what’s already covered:

Registration is free and is limited to 150 participants tops so please register early and let us know how you’d like to contribute. The venue will be open 24 hours and you can stay overnight and hack thru the night.

We’d like to thank the entire teams of all2gethernow, newthinking communications and Music Hack Day for all their help making this possible.

David We join Eric D. Clark for Worldtronics

This week we will join forces with Eric D. Clark and his labels to attend Worldtronics – Festival of Electronic Music that takes place in Berlin. During five days (wed-sun) Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt will be full of musicians, labels, music companies and hopefully a lot of electronic music heads. During the first two days we will have a stand together in the main hall showing how Eric uses SoundCloud to share and distribute his tracks on the web. So if you plan to come by please visit us as well, listen to some great music and pick up a few stickers.

David Thank you all

Thank you for a fantastic release party everyone. We had a great time, hope you did too. We want to grab this opportunity to also thank some people that made this celebration possible.

In the early evening, Swedish new jazz wave musicians Nils Berg (Sax, Flute), Josef Kallerdahl (Bass) and Sebastian Voegler (Drums) played two dirty jazz noir sets that some say was the highlight of the whole evening. Thanks for starting the night with such beautiful music.

In the middle of all the stress we forgot to mention one of the DJ’s that were playing in the evening so let’s correct that error. Fredrik Nyberg aka NIBC played tunes that made all the people outside both warm and in dance mode. Thank you Fredrik! A lot of people were also asking about the food and I’m very to happy to be able to present our caterer and star chef, Shannon Campbell. We are glad you liked his food and so is he.

Tanja & Björn over at PICKNICK also deserve a huge thanks. I can definitely say that your club now lies even closer to our hearts.

And our secret guest and old friend Snax did absolutely not let us down. Two songs was all that was needed to understand this mans brilliance. Check the photos below and you’ll see what we mean. Also check this video from our pre-release rooftop party.

Last but not least, our intern Johan Uhle made all the difference in organizing this monster. Nothing had worked without you and we wish you good luck on the tour with The Golden Pony Boy.

And to finish off, here are some pictures from the party. Photographer Tony Dahlgren
