Web Design and music for interactions and inspirations

November 8th, 2011

This is a post i wanted to blog since time. It has not to be meant as a guide or a reccomendation, it’s just my desire to express how much the music is important for me all the time, while i am working and in my spare time. In some aspects of my work, music makes me concentrate more and helps me to get inspirated and motivated in what i am doing. Normally the best moment for me to listen Music is in the morning after i got up. In the morning Music juices my movitations, my goals and probably makes me thing better.
The world of the Music has changed dramatically in the last few years, from the production to the distribution. It’s unbelievable the quantity of free music can be legally downloadable. Many websites play tracks without interruptions, all the time we get access to Internet we can listen music of our favourite Band or artist. Also the quality has improved a lot, with good speakers we can now play high quality music. What is still missing maybe it s the usage of the music or sound in websites not dedicated to the music scenery. I think in a short time people will realise that a Website can be seen as a movie and so it can have a music background.
I hope you can enjoy now my favorite Web Music applications and some nice websites music layout.

Soundcloud

Soundcloud
SoundCloud was originally started in Stockholm, Sweden, but was established in Berlin, Germany in August, 2007 by sound designer Alex Ljung and artist Eric Wahlforss. It had the intention of allowing musicians to share recordings with each other, but later transformed into a full publishing tool which also allowed musicians to distribute their music tracks.
A few months after it began operating, SoundCloud began to challenge the dominance of MySpace as a platform for musicians to distribute their music, by allowing recording artists to react more nimbly with their fans.

Project Tools

June 7th, 2011

Project management tools can be extremely costly, but there are bargains to be had out there if you know where to look. Good news:these guys do.
Robust project-management is a must for collaborative work, or even relatively complex solo jobs. Basecamp from 37signals is a firm favourite with many designers. Alec Easter, founder of THBOOM!, says it ” It scales as you need it and there is no contract”. Its emphasis on communication and collaboration makes the $49 per month seem reasonable, but if money’s tight, there’s a basic plan ( 15 projects, 5GB storage) for $ 24 per month and free plan (one project, no file sharing).
