If you have a question about this talk, please contact Matthew Ireland.

The MIDI standard has transformed how artists interact and work with music. Revolutionising their workflow, from getting down those first inspired ideas to manipulating, exploring and producing their works of art. But what is it? How did it come about? How does it work? These are some of the questions I shall attempt to answer and explore in this introduction to MIDI . I begin by speaking about how MIDI is used in the modern world, then delve into the history to provide a background and context for the motivation of its development. I follow this with some details on the protocol then finish with a demonstration and a discussion on the future and significance of MIDI .
