Ahead of the MIDEM Hack Day due to take place in Cannes January 24, we asked some of its participants to discuss the importance of hacking – i.e. creating new music apps and sites & services using pure code-crunching – for the music industry. Here, Soundcloud’s CTO notably points out that without hackers, there would be no Mobile Roadie, no hyper-sophisticated Korg emulators… thank you hackers!
MIDEM Hack Day is a spin-off of the Music Hack Days organised by Soundcloud’s Dave Haynes. Read his original post announcing the event here. & see you there!
