CANNES, FRANCE — We’ve been quite busy appearing on panels and meeting with sources here at Midem 2012, but perhaps no one at this music industry festival worked harder and slept less than the music app developers at Music Hack Day Cannes.
In an oxygen-starved room on the fifth floor of the Palais des Festivals, developers from all over the world built some incredibly neat stuff in a 48-hour period, then presented them to the music industry at the presentation above.
The above video, which is about 45 minutes long, allows you to see each of their apps in action, but in case you just want to find out what they built, here’s the complete list of music hacks from the wiki:
