Welcome to the Wiki of the 3D Hack Camp at the London 2012 Music Tech Fest.

This Hack Camp is about exploring and building creative music applications. Just like Music Hack Days, it’s 48 hours of hacking in which participants will conceptualize, create and present their projects.

This Hack Camp is 3D in that participants will include programmers as well as visual artists, sonic artists, and video artists. Multidisciplinary collaboration is encouraged. A live band will be present in the hack space in case you want to connect live instruments, and you will have the possibility to use the help of film editors, broadcasters and sound designers for applications which require moving image or particular sounds.

Where and When

The Hack Camp will be held on the 6th floor of Ravensbourne College, located right next to the O2 (North Greenwhich Tube Station).

The address is: 6 Penrose Way, London, SE10 0EW

The Hack Camp will run from Friday May 18th till Saturday May 19th 2012.
