The Open Music Initiative (OMI) will host musicians, software developers, and visual artists in its Summer Lab between June 5-July 28 in Boston, MA, United States.
Lab participants will explore the technical challenges of utilizing open-source protocols to:
- Catalogue, attribute and distribute live DJ mixes.
- Commercialize mixtapes built from original material and back catalogs.
- Compensate musicians for visual works using their songs as data.
- Identify artists for their contribution to single tracks in new works.

Selected musicians and artists will receive an expenses-paid trip to the US in order to participate in the Lab. This program is facilitated by IDEO and Berklee College, and is sponsored by Intel and the Inter-American Development Bank.
