There are always some interesting things at MIDEM and 2017 is no different. I was checking out the categories earlier in the week and I thought it would be worth sharing some of the start ups that are going.
So let’s start with Skoog …
I was lucky enough to meet Dr Ben from Skoog in Berlin at MMM2017 in March. He’s one of those people that I’ve been meaning to meet up with for a very long time indeed and it was great to chat about Skoog and mobile music in general. I’m still waiting to get my hands on a Skoog as I’m really interested in experimenting with it to see how I can use it with a wide variety of apps.
Skoog has both an interesting past and future and is the kind of device that could very much lend itself to gestural based music.
Also they’ve got some very nice new software coming up together with a Swift Playground.
The next is Hum-On!
Which looks like a very interesting if not entirely new idea. I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen other apps that are very similar. Even so, it’s still a good idea and one that could do with exploration.
So, as you can see, there are some good things coming to MIDEM. The two above are just a small sample of what will be at MIDEM this year. Check out the rest here, and if you hear of any other interesting ones, please let me know.
