Art+Logic Talks MIDI 2.0

MIDI 2.0

For the past year or so, I’ve been working as one of a group of developers within the Protocol Working Group of the MIDI Manufacturers Association to create prototype tools and applications that implement the upcoming MIDI 2.0 specification as it’s worked its way through many drafts to the point where it’s now ready for the MMA and AMEI, their Japanese counterpart, to vote on its adoption as an official standard.

I’m looking forward to presenting more information on what’s new for musicians and developers in the new standard, both here on the A+L blog and out in the real world.

SXSW PanelPicker

Art+Logic has submitted three proposals to present panels at the 2019 SXSW Interactive Festival that will take place March 8-12, 2019 in Austin, Texas. Since SXSW has received over 5000 proposals for approximately 750 sessions, it’s not going to be trivial to make the cut.

Rebuilding SXSW

SXSW 2017

Now, just hold on a minute. I’m not trying to say that SXSW is broken or somehow inefficient. Stop yelling at me.

Look: SXSW has been around for about 30 years at this point. And it’s grown exponentially in that time. I started going to peripheral music events around 2010 and began attending the Interactive portion in an official capacity for Art+Logic in 2013.
