Abstract

iSpaceTunes is a music networking application website that connects target users to share their musical interests through their connections. Their music library will be virtualized as 'planets', and other connected users will be able to stream music selections on that planet, rate them, and also leave comments. This project will enable users to network with people of similar musical interests and listen to songs that they might like. This will hopefully prompt users to seek out and buy the newly discovered music to expand their music library

Details

I've been interested in seeking obscure tracks for quite a while now. I've found people from all over the world having the same interest as me by browsing through various music blogs and music community websites. In adition I collect records in my free time.

The idea crossed my mind when realized that nowadays with the ubiquitous availability of the internet and networking websites, it is almost expected that a person will have at least one social network account.

In addition, my project has been inspired by Apple Products, especially their iPod/iTouch line of product. I have seen how people have been transferred to a different world by listening to their favorite music.

This web application will allow users to customize a ‘planet’ with variety of colors and look and feel. This planet will contain their favorite music, and other users will then be able to rate and leave comments on one another’s planets. When the users reach certain level of ratings from other users, a variety of applications will then be available for them to ‘pimp’ their planet.

Users can only listen to the selections online on the music player provided, and will not be able to download the tracks from other users’ planets.

In conclusion, iSpaceTunes will connect people through their favorite obscure tracks, and share their musical taste with other planet owners. This project will create new way for target users to experience networking and sharing their music pleasure.


Primary audience
- People who are interested in seeking obscure tracks; collecting rare records.

Secondary audience:
- People who are interested in blogs and social networking sites (Facebook, MySpace, Friendster)


Statement of Interest

I am mainly interested in the following areas: seeking obscure tracks; collecting rare records, and creatively designing products. With today's technology advancements, there are a variety of ways people to discover music, through blogs, song download engines, and also conventional record stores. Also I have joined various networking sites in the last four years, and this has enabled me to connect to people from various parts of the world sharing the same interests. My main passions are to combine social networking with music and develop interactive media. This new networking interface will hopefully connects people in a new and fun way,
and also open up a new way to dialogue based on musical interests.
