Platforms arent agile, by definition We have a lot of valuable content/metadata You understand your needs better than we do The cost of creating analytical tools is falling We want to step out of the way … Apps – why?
Apps – for example … (SALAMI) Analyses the structure of 100,00s of pieces of music from the Internet Archive so that one can easily identify the coda, etc. of a given piece of music. (Chorale Composer) Interactive music theory instruction application that offers real time, automatic analysis of musical input and Teacher- defined templates that automatically generate interactive practice sheets
Apps – for example … (Peachnote score viewer) Create and share annotations as an independent overlay on top of a score image
In early 2013, well release an API to enable 3 rd parties to build apps on top of our content Let us know if youd like to get involved: –Apps that would benefit from access to our content –Ideas for apps Apps – our thoughts …
