This weekend, we sponsored Music Hack Day's first foray into the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia. The event was hosted at Drexel University's ExCITe Center, which is home to one of the most epic music hacks, the Magnetic Resonator Piano.
The results from the weekend were impressive, as they usually are. Here are the hacks that involved Rdio:
All That Philly Jazz — Website
An interactive soundmap of the historic Philly Jazz scene. The app is still in progress, but the team put together the core infrastructure this weekend, using Rdio for background music. As the app progresses, they'll be adding tracks from Rdio to each of the locations on the map.
Automatically generates an Rdio playlist for your wedding reception using the Echonest.
A bookmarklet to support collaboratively building playlists with your friends, even if you all use different music services.
The full list of projects is available on Hacker League.
