A bunch of music tech folk will be in Dublin Ireland next week to attend ACM Recommender Systems 2012. We’ll be heading over to the Bull & Castle, beside Christ Church, Dublin City on September 13 at 18:30 to join <Pub> Standands Dublin, to hang out and chat about hacking music. Pub Standards is a post-conference drink-up without the conference. There’s no format, talks or presentations. It’s just geeks + beer. If you are in the area and are interested in hanging out, feel free to come on down and have a beer.
Next week I’ll be giving a talk about remixing music with Echo Nest remix at the Boston Python Meetup Group. If you are in the Boston / Cambridge area next week, be sure to come on by and say ‘hi’. Info and RSVP for the talk are here: The Boston Python Meetup Group on Meetup.com
Here’s the abstract for the talk:
Paul Lamere will tell us about Echo Nest remix. Remix is an open source Python library for remixing music. With remix you can use Python to rearrange a track, combine it with others, beat/pitch shift it etc. – essentially it lets you treat a song like silly putty.
The Swinger is an interesting example of what it can do that made the rounds of the blogosphere: it morphs songs to give them a swing rhythm.

If you are interested in joining a mix of music techies, music bloggers and music makers for a few hours, to talk about music and technology feel free to join us. RSVP here at zed equals zee.
