musiCompass : people =AD artist =AD music and their connections
A consortium of www.wadi.de =AD www. Audioscrobbler.com =AD www.last.fm
musiCompass focuses on the world of music. Music is one of the best ways
to express emotions and moods as a performer as well as a listener.
Music has been, and continues to be at the centres of society.
Artists create styles of music, people listen to them and develop
identifications; collecting music, creating play lists and developing a
unique music taste are trends of the time.
musiCompass aims to bring people, artists and music together in a visual
and interactive environment.
