I spent Saturday at the Soundscapes Music Hackathon. It was interesting, and a well run event, but I just didn't know enough music stuff to quickly hack something together that I wanted to present.
I spent most of the day chatting with @LourdesZapata and @stellagram1, while I coded up starscape. It doesn't really work, but the idea was to take data from http://data.nasa.gov and try and turn it into music. This is still a concept I'm interested in, so maybe next week I'll iterate on the idea more at RC.
Some interesting things I learned about from the talks though:
- NYC Electroacoustic Music Festival
- Micahel Musick presented his sonic space research, which really reminded me of DAYLAY, an exhibit I saw a while ago in SF.
- citygram sounds like it has a lot of cool data.
