Since it began in January 2015, the #MusicBricks toolkit has grown from a collection of 8 interoperable technologies created as a result of the latest academic research in music technology - to a powerful suite of 15 APIs, Graphical User Interfaces (GUIs) and Tangible User Interfaces (TUIs) that include contributions of technologies from industry partners.

#MusicBricks project #FindingSomethingBondingSound has received the Ars Electronica STARTS Prize Honourable Mention for achievements at the crossover between science and art; Hi Note has featured on the BBC and in the Guardian newspaper in the UK, on Radio Eins in Germany and on Portuguese National Television; and Airstrument‘s Matan Berkowitz has been listed in Forbes’ 30 under 30 top entrepreneurs in Israel.
Meanwhile, the hashtag #MusicBricks registered over 5.5 million impacts on Twitter last month and the project’s Innovation Coordinator Michela Magas was awarded Innovation Luminary 2016 for Creative Innovation at the Open Innovation 2.0 conference in Amsterdam.
The #MusicBricks Tangible User Interface - the Ircam-developed R-IoT - has been batch tested for commercial production. Talks are being conducted between #MusicBricks and major global distributers for large scale deployment.
We are very excited to be working with SoundCloud as the #MusicBricks project develops and evolves.
