Music Tech Fest is an event pulling the entire music technology ecosystem under one roof – from the big guys in the music industry and media, music tech startups and apps creators, to developers, artists, performers, researchers, creatives and hackers. This ‘festival of ideas’ aims to mix performances and presentations, demos and installations in order to stimulate the development of innovative new projects and unlikely, thrilling collaborations.
After a series of successful events in New Zealand, Boston and London Music Tech Fest is heading to Berlin. This edition will be held from the 24th to the 26th of October, 2014 and will be packed with performances, demonstrations and presentations from artists, technologists, entrepreneurs, academics and ideas people. SPECIFI will participate in this festival organizing a 2-day hackathon on the 25-26th of October. Here developers, coders and programmers will join forces to use SPECIFI technology in order to conceptualize new music ideas. Moreover, an Internet-assisted artistic performance will be presented on stage: a piece of music will be played live by musicians located both in Barcelona and Berlin.
