A Hack Day for Classical Music

Classical Music + Technology = Future

What happens when musicians and software developers try to move the boundaries of what is doable and create breakthrough technologies? At the Karajan-Institute, we believe that such a goal can only be reached when lots of brilliant minds work together. This is why we have started the Classical Music Hack Day series four years ago: to build a network of researchers, data scientists and musicologists, who are all interested in linking technology and creativity.

Today we are proud to partner with the Salzburg Univerity of Applied Sciences and the Mozarteum University to bring the 4th Classical Music Hack Day to Salzburg. The Hack Day is a separate event that will take place April 8 – 9 at Salzburg University of Applied Sciences. For more information, please visit the event website at:

FAQ

Q: What is hacking?

A: Here is what the “Internet User’s Glossary” (RFC 1392) from 1993 has to say:

hacker
      A person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the
      internal workings of a system, computers and computer networks in
      particular.  The term is often misused in a pejorative context,
      where "cracker" would be the correct term.  See also: cracker.

 

Q: Can I attend the Classical Music Hackathon?
