Despite all our online interconnectivity, it’s often easy to feel isolated. Now there’s a way to see, on a street-by-street basis, what’s going on in the music world around you.
Musomap is a free online tool (an interactive Google Map, in fact!) that “invites musicians around the world to join a conversation focused on improving the way we all collaborate.”
Mix one part “Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?,” one part “FourSquare,” and one part “Craigslist”—only much, much simpler—then stir!
Need help finding or building a group of musicians that can support each other in gigging, recording, and community efforts? Want to geek out with other people who are obsessed with your favorite genre? Just add yourself to the map and connect with musicians in your area, or all the way across the globe!
The map took over 12 months to develop, and has been gaining momentum since its launch earlier this year. Its creator, Kahne Raja, says of the project: “My ambitious goal is to gather 10,000 live musicians and launch World Musicians Day on April 6th, 2013 in every suburb across the planet. My 50 year goal is to build a free online resource to help a diverse group of musician’s connect in a trusting online environment.”
