I was invited by Mint Digital to talk at the London Music Tech Fest last Friday. With an audience full of developers and audio professionals, I wanted to highlight the growing potential for these two disciplines to collaborate now that HTML5 audio is supported in several major browsers.
There’s room for some early innovators to make a big name for themselves in this space, and after the talk I had a good chat with some folk at Ninja Tune, the Guardian and BBC Radio who want to experiment in this space. Mint Digital proposed putting on an audio-dedicated hack day, which could produce some real magic.
Here’s my presentation slides with a few examples of web audio in action, plus a few ideas for what could happen next.
