Today we had the kick off for the Euro Pace project in Amsterdam.
The best way to describe it is as a portable (like, totally portable) DJ mixing device with 120GB storage for your tunes. Using the Pacemaker, it’s possible to scratch and mix as on turntables.
We want to know its limits. Is it a toy? A professional alternative? Something in-between? Something else entirely?
We also want to know how it fits into the Music 2.0 world. How does this device encourage online community and sharing? What’s the connection between this and other mobile music devices?
Andrew Dubber and his team will be running it from the UK and we will do it from Hilversum and Amsterdam...
