As part of International Jazz Day, Monthly Music Hackathon NYC hosts a daylong conference for musicians, composers, gearheads and researchers to explore new ways to create music. Participation is limited (e-mail musichackathon@gmail.com if interested), but at 7pm the final presentations, which will include musical performances and explanations of the technology used, are open to the public.
