Create new musical instruments with ROLI BLOCKS

Background Mission Reward
BLOCKS is a new hardware music environment developed by ROLI, allowing to create new music gestures and practices.
BLOCKS can be entirely customised and assembled with Max, Javascript, C++, to develop interactive experiences for desktop, mobile and web.
The hackathon will bring together artists, developers, designers and product visionaries to create unique creative experiences.
Over two days, team up with designers, developers or artists to invent interactive experiences.
Everyone is invited to join the hackathon: from students to experienced developers, designers , artists and musicians.
It is the perfect place to build and test ideas. You can either bring an ongoing project or start one from scratch, use the technologies available and join a project!
The hackathon takes place at the fantastic Musical Instrument Fair in Tokyo at Tokyo Big Sight.
We will offer great prizes to the best teams. You will also get to meet artists and engineers that will guide you and give you feedback on your projects.
