An economy application to help re-imagine how musicians can collaborate together on their works
This project started out under the proposal of “A redesign of an economy based app, using fair-sharing principles, via design fiction”. The goal of this project has been to re-imagine the way musicians might collaborate together in the future, applying the principles of Design Fiction. The concept of music collaboration is pushed forward a few years in this project. The scenario it has been designed for is not too unrealistic when compared to modern collaboration techniques.
The objective of this project have been to look at online music collaboration as it currently stands, and redesign how it will work at a future date. A high-fidelity prototype website, developed in HTML, is to be a proof of concept for the idea. This website is to be a place where musicians can upload their work for people to collaborate on, or for them to find the work of others to collaborate on. The thesis for this project discussed the ideas of Design Fiction in a literature review, further possible developments for the website if it was to go to full development, and how this idea being implemented would affect the way in which people create music.
