Monthly Music Hackathon NYC & Columbia University Electrical Engineering Department Present:
The 2nd Annual Jazz Hackathon
April 26, 2014
To hack is to make something new by deeply investigating, taking apart, and reassembling a subject. Hackathons are gatherings that spend a full day going through the entire lifecycle of a creative project. It’s an opportunity to try out and share new ideas, collaborate, practice executing a project, and present what you’ve come up with. This hackathon will focus on jazz
There has been an explosion of development in technological tools for studying music in the past 20 years and jazz has been studied with these tools somewhat less than other styles of music, presenting an opportunity for new exploration. A research project at Columbia University called J-DISC has been focusing on this opportunity for the last few years. The Jazz Hackathon will kick off with a brief update on that particular project as well as with an overview of other interesting jazz research projects.
Any project that investigates jazz is appropriate for the Jazz Hackathon. Examples include new pieces of music, new approaches to improvisation, visualizations of audio, jazz history research, automated jazz performance, jazz catalog browsers, or the perfect niche jazz streaming music app. Last year participants created projects that re-synthesized a Charlie Parker solo with bird song, made a group improvisation guided by a Vine-powered score, designed automatically generated lead sheets, to name only a few projects.
Anyone who creates things related to jazz or art and technology is welcome to attend: musicians, composers, artists, musicologists, programmers, engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, designers, weirdos, you.
Our special guests are the legendary virtuosic Ragtime group Xylopholks!
This event will last from 10am - 8pm, with a concert and hack presentations to follow. The event will take place on Columbia University Morningside Campus, Costa Commons Engineering.
