Music and digitisation have been tightly interwoven for some time. This motivated us to dedicate a full track to this topic for the first time in 2015. In cooperation with Musicboard Berlin we featured the Musicday at re:publica TEN's labore:tory. In the lead up to Musicday 2016, Musicboard Berlin and we selected the best of your submissions. We were looking for national and international exchanges of ideas, new formats and future developments in the music scene.
We discovered how mobile music apps and VR/AR affect how we enjoy music, looked at recording methods that deliver 360-degree sound, music startups that are shifting the relationship between producer and consumer and how virtual supergroups are made possible. Not only programme, but also hands-on: Musicday's Virtual Reality installations were made possible with the support of the Berlin Senate Department for Economics, Technology and Research/ Projekt Zukunft with funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
