    Default Suggestions for a Class Project?

    I'm taking this class this quarter called Music and the World Wide Web, and for my mid-term I need to select a music topic to research on the web and provide a bookmark file containing at least 25 web sites which deal in some way with that topic.

    Here's a list of some of the old topics that other students used/suggested ones:
    MP3 compression
    copyright issues
    live music collaboration
    ethics of musical 'borrowing'
    soundtracks/scoring for film
    soundfile formats
    web radio
    sound applications
    Mods/Trackers
    International MIDIfiles
    the current state of the codec
    fractals, chaos theory music
    music history
    koans
    auditory illusions/3D sound
    java(scripts)
    interactivity
    shockwave
    webcasting
    instrument manufacturers
    MIDIfiles
    digital audio.
    applets/helpers/plug ins
    modern music composition
    ethnomusicology
    soundfiles
    soundfile editing

    ========

    So yeah, I was thinking of doing something about live music recording at concerts/festivals, maybe using the example of the Daft Punk live set from Coachella 2006 and how people traded recorded versions of the set to one another, etc. What do you think of that idea? What ideas do you have of your own?

    Thanks.
    Upcoming Shows:
    * Dillon Francis + Anamanaguchi -- December 28th

    Going to Weekend 1 of Coachella 2014

    i like your idea. i think you could go a lot of ways with it. are you writing anything on this, or just compiling resources? if writing, i would discuss the positive impacts, such as increased recognition and notoriety through free media. obviously, daft punk were able to do a full tour thanks in part to the coachella fan videos.

    i would also examine the negative aspects including rights to property and distribution. with the current writer's strike, there should be a ton of material out on that.
