Music 3.0

Music 3.0 is an R&D project funded by the program Avanza Contenidos of the Spanish Ministry of Industry, Turism and Trade. Its main goal is to develop an experimental web-based system for music creation, interaction and socialization. Such system should integrate the most recent technologies of the Web 2.0, advanced on-line tools for music creation, and large sound and music repositories. For such system there will be a need to develop social networking models specific for music, models for the treatment of music content and also models for the creation of new content.

The result will be a Web portal which will allow any user, or software application, to participate in a musical social network, easily accessing a wide range of musical content and being able to create and share new content using new concepts and adapted to the user's profile.

The main outcome of this project is the Canoris platform. Canoris offered functionality in both the analysis and synthesis of sound and music. Years worth of research into Music Information Retrieval and Digital Signal Processing by our partners has been integrated into a single coherent platform. In order to maximize the use of the audio processing technologies and the associated impact, Canoris web services have been integrated in the renewed website of the Freesound Project, currently with more than 2 million registered users and more than 100.000 uploaded sounds.

With the support of the Miniterio de Industria, Turismo y Comercio (Plan Nacional de Investigación Científica, desarrollo e Innovación Tecnológica 2008-2011 (Plan Avanza - TSI-070100-2008-318).
