Indaba Music - Musicians Jam From Afar

Yes, I know most of us Second Life performers, when reading this, are going to go 'Grrrrrrr, we been doing this for years already... in Second Life.. grrrr!' Yeah, I know, I thought that too...
Then I played with the site. It is completely complimentary to the Second Life musician collaboration experience, and not another site preventing talented performers from getting involved with SL. I think SL musicians will be able to use this powerful set of tools Indaba Music has to offer. Here's my page: . I also want to commend the site for the best default avatar (the picture for your profile before you upload your own pic).


Indaba Music
( ) is an international community of musicians, music professionals, and fans exploring the creative possibilities of making music with people in different places.

It makes finding other people, and working on recording, mixing, or mastering projects easier. For fans, Indaba provides unprecedented access to artists and to the creative process.

With recording hardware and software now available on almost any budget, it's easier than ever for artists of all levels and backgrounds to record and produce professional quality music. Artists are also harnessing the internet to get their music heard by more people than ever before. We think this is a big deal for the future of music, and we built Indaba to be an environment for artists to harness these trends and create music in new ways.

We don't believe that Indaba Music will ever recreate or replace the experience of working with someone else in the same room, but we do believe we can foster a community that offers new opportunities for artists at all levels to connect and work creatively together, regardless of location.

The site is more than just a tool, it's a community of real people connecting and collaborating in new and exciting ways. As we grow, we plan to add even more exciting features, including more advanced collaborative functionality and ways for fans to experience music creation. We can't wait to see how you use the site!

Indaba is a Zulu word that invokes the spirit of collaboration and community. It refers to a gathering or a forum for sharing ideas, and it embodies concepts that are central to the mission of Indaba Music.

You need to get out of sl more. Online music collaboration systems have been around for years, and indaba - while a neat implementation, is not the first by a long shot.
