Music Visualisation: Here Be Dragons

Innovation is hard. An idea is one thing, implementing it quite another. How good is your reseach? How are your storytelling abilities? Can get it all to critical mass before your finances are entirely exhausted? Here some of the land-mines being navigated by this project.

Potential Crowdfunder?

Despite the (to my mind) clear path to a world music visualisation aggregator and interworking platform, the journey itself is fraught with challenges. We try to put a name to the main ones..

Some have already been overcome, some still stand. My gut feeling? From a technical standpoint, nothing insurmountable. From an informational and finance-raising standpoint, not perhaps so easy.

As already described elsewhere, the project's scope is difficult to convey in the attention span of the average internet tripper, making both informing and fundraising difficult. To date, however, these aspects are yet not featured in the following pictorial roundup.. Watch this space.

Big, brave, open-source, non-profit, community-provisioned, cross-cultural and ouija board crazy. → Like, share, back-link, pin, tweet and mail. Hashtags? For the crowdfunding: #VisualFutureOfMusic. For the future live platform: #WorldMusicInstrumentsAndTheory. Or simply register as a potential crowdfunder..

Where playing together online is fraught with latency issues, teaching (one-way) is already widely practiced - using video chat. We simply plan to add shared score, a highly personalised toolset and built-in synchronisation. The core challenge? *Personalisation*.
