It’s been a busy weekend for Music Tech in the Bay Area. Yesterday saw the Music Tech Summit in San Francisco and Saturday and Sunday held the Music Hack Day. There is an awesome full list of hacks on their wiki page and the Soundcloud Developers Blog has a good review of their Music Hack Day experience.
I’m off to Berkeley this morning to attend the Music Business Seminar held by the California Lawyers for the Arts. They’ve put on a full schedule of events including a keynote address from Erik Metzger, patent attorney for Intel, and panelists including speakers from Pandora and other digital music ventures. Sessions include DIY Marketing, Make your own APP and Digital Media Panel. Looking forward to an informative and entertaining day learning the music business insights from the legal professionals who specialize in the area.
The Linux Audio Conference is the international conference about Open Source Software for music, sound and other media with Linux as the main platform. 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the event and it is the first time the LAC takes place in the United States. The Linux Audio Conference brings together musicians, composers, sound artists, software developers, researchers and engineers working with Linux as an open, stable, professional platform for audio and media research and music production.
Deadline for submissions of papers/presentations is January 22nd.
I have little more than a passing familiarity with Linux, but I’m looking forward to seeing some of the innovations that will be on display. Last year’s event was held in Ireland at Maynooth College. Check out the archives from that event.
