Watch that score
From Music Hack Day
 Watch that score
Usually the sheet music stand is only visible to the performer. But with smartphones and tablets, the digital score can easily be brought to the audience via the browser. What's more, the score will automatically follow the performance. An addon experience especially for classical nerds.
 About the hack
This hack is building further upon a score following hack built at musihackday NYC (Feb/2011) and Barcelona (Jun/2011). With those previous hacks, we achieved to come up with a reliable music following solution for digital sheet music which turns pages automatically. This is extremely handy for musicians as they can keep their hands on their instrument while the sheet music is following the performance. But why should this experience be limited for the performer only? Let's bring that sheet music in the hands of the audience! Having a smartphone or a tablet, one can capture a QR code or simply browse to the site of the performance, see the score and enjoy this addon experience.
 What APIs, tools or kit did you use?
- MuseScore open source notation software for creating sheet music

- SampleSumo.com providing the music following technology
- Node.js for distributing score following
