We just woke up from a crazy weekend at MIDI HACK in Stockholm. We were there working on our new sequencer but got stuck on a MIDI overflow thing, it didn’t matter though since we where in the jury for Norbergfestival we didn’t compete for any of the prices and we’ll finish it anyways.
Out of about 60 teams we fell for the project Dropworks by Lovisa Negga and Pär Carlsson, it had everything a good hack should have and they used it in a musical interesting way. 5 cans were dripping down on a circuit that send a MIDI message when the drop hit the circuit. Simple, elegant and a beautiful way trigger random MIDI messages.
