In the continuity of the conference Music and hacking : Instruments, communities and values, IRCAM organises a "Music Hack Day" of more than 24 hours inside the institute. More than 50 hackers are expected to create and hack various musical and sound devices. The session will focus on the complementarity between software and hardware systems in order to emerge new interations between instruments, musicians and networks.
