Facilitating Collective Musical Creativity


Facilitating Collective Musical Creativity


We present two projects that facilitate collective music creativity over networks. One system is a participative social music system on mobile devices. The other is a collaborative music mixing environment that adheres to the Creative Commons license [1]. We discuss how network and community infrastructures affect the creative musical process, and the implications for artists creating new content for these formats. The projects described are real-world examples of collaborative systems as musical works.
