“New Music Jukebox, an imaginatively conceived online library sponsored by the American Music Center, might wind up as the digital equivalent of [a] slush pile. But it also has the potential to bring a wider variety of works by American composers to the attention of performers, students, artistic administrators, choreographers and critics…the site will function as a clearinghouse where anyone can search for works by composer, genre or instrumentation and access score or sound files directly or via links to publishers.”
— Barbara Jepson in today’s issue of the Wall Street Journal.
Not exactly “imaginative” — I know that other sites have tried to do the same thing — but certainly worthwhile. I wish them luck, and look forward to perusing the site when it launches on October 9.
