An evening of song and music around the virtual fireplace

Also at Barcamp Bangalore 5 were Nithya and Prateek Dayal of Muziboo, an online music community. This morning after watching Shourya’s vidcast with Prateek, I went to have a look at the site.

There’s something about listening to a homemade amateurish production, reading the comments, and then moving on to another recording wherein the performer improves based on earlier feedback that is strongly reminiscent of sitting around with friends, unwinding at the afterparty, wherein someone strumming a guitar breaks into song and the others chime in, each doing it for the exhilaration of letting it out than with the intent of a musical production.

Muziboo may be on to something if they can build an environment that caters to such emotional release.

Hi Jace,

Thanks for this post. You are correct .. there is something interesting about listening to music that people like you and me have created. Reading the discussions is also very interesting

I also feel that muziboo can be successful if we can connect people and bring in a sort of "fun" element in discovering, listening and commenting on the music. We plan to do a ver 2.0 release around new year and hopefully it will make Muziboo an even more exciting place to be a part of

strongly reminiscent

Disagree!

I don't see how you can compare one with the other... It's like indulging in online sex vs. it between the sheets (-->or wherever else for real).
