Call for creators - Sónar+D Innovation Challenge

The call for creators to participate to be part of the Sonar Innovation Challenge 2019 is open until May 24th.


This year Sónar+D is organizing the 4th edition of the Sónar+D Innovation Challenge (SIC). SIC is a platform for the collaboration between innovative tech companies and the creative community (programmers, designers, artists) that aims to produce disruptive prototypes to be showcased in Sónar+D. The interaction between companies and creators happens through challenges proposed by the companies themselves. Challenges are open questions to the creative community, that can be approached from a technical and/or artistic perspective. SIC is organized with the support of the Music Technology Group.

This year SIC proposes 4 challenges about personalizing spaces with social data, creating sound experiences that represent the value of diversity, designing the future of digital music services and affective computing for learning through games. More information about in SIC website
