The MIT Music Production Collaborative is hosting its fall music hackathon, this year judged by multi-platinum rapper and MIT MLK Visiting Scholar Lupe Fiasco (you’re lying if you say you didn’t have this song on repeat in 2011). Participants will create a track related to a mystery prompt, either with a small group or on their own, and then Lupe will provide feedback in a listening session. The collaborative will provide MIDI keyboards and staff mentorship for participants with all levels of experience, and participants bring a computer and any other equipment on which they want to make your track. The collaborative will also provide staff mentorship throughout the day for those who haven’t produced music before.
