There’s already something to look forward to in the new year: introducing HackBeat Copenhagen, a 3 night workshop all about music. The  workshop seeks to provide platform for some fun and informal collaborations around music and technology, as well as supply a basis for creating something new in the intersection between the two.The result of the hack can encompass anything from technical prototypes, online services, new instruments or products related to music to a live performance.

The hosts have defined three starting points to get your creative juices flowing:
– Listening to music and the discovery of music.
– Creation of sounds, instruments and supporting technology
– Music performance and reproduction
