Music? Social?

From The Next Web’s Ernst-Jan Pfauth (Music Community Koblo Needs to Show Some Soul), a music editing software that I didn’t know about.  Koblo has apparently been around for a long time (1998).  But the Denmark-based company, Aarthus, is now bundling a recently enriched version of their software within a new social network, where musicians and bands can meet up, share their tracks, and talk.

Koblo LogoOf course, anyone who’s done anything with music, such as listening to it, knows that the experience is social.  Think of all those Beatles and Monkeys fan clubs.  But music makers have also long been meeting and sharing online, playing their music and selling their old instruments.  What’s interesting to me about Koblo is that they are connecting the actual music-making with the community.

A similar service, which has been around for a time, is Berlin-based Hobnox.  It is also a music community with a music-making tool.  But their music software is web-based, further connecting the music with the community, nearly becoming one.

This really isn’t instructional.  But it is another example of community generating content for the community.

Can’t wait to get to my hotel room and play!
