Composition App?

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody!

Last week I thought about how amazing it would be to have an app that connects musicians and composers worldwide with each others, so that composers can ask musicians to play a certain passage to know how it would sound like in reality.

For instance:
A Chinese composer would like to know if the following saxophone melody is playable:
Knipsel.JPG

However, he doesn't know a saxophone player, to whom he could go for feedback.
With this app he could post this melody and all registered saxophonists can see it and consider to play and record it for the Chinese composer.

Is there such an app, I mean? If so, I would really appreciate the name of it!

A "musician social network" ? Good idea! It also can help us know folk instruments and composition techniques.

I'm a computer engineer and programmer, I may start writing something for that :D

It would indeed be very helpful!
I was also thinking about creating an app for this purpose, but I don't know where to begin.
Maybe we can collaborate a bit and see if there is a chance to make this idea into a really useful tool.

Great idea, guys! Maybe we could design a composer's network online or something. Even this site is for the above purpose to an extent.

Add detail.

Yes, but I think it would work even more better with a simple app, because this is easier to record yourself with your phone.

Yeah, true. How about a mobile app for YC network with extra features?

If YC has some kind of API or any other programming interface, it's easy to make an app. Otherwise, I prefer to design and write an API for making the composers app.

How about just starting by creating a thread for it on YC where composers and performers can post their passages and their recordings?

An app for something like this might be overkill, however I certainly would endorse it if someone took the initiative to create one.  I've tried a forum called "Find a Composer" but the forum never seemed to take off.  As @luderart said, if someone wants to create a thread in one of the forums, such as the Composers' Headquarters, feel free to do so.  And if that thread really takes off and is something popular, we can consider opening a new forum then.

Even better, maybe we can make use of the new club feature here.  Perhaps something like this is better utilized in a club, this way we can keep track of members who may be interested in participating.
