A project for professional musicians, editors or amateurs
Searching scores, looking at them partially, and, once bought, downloading them. The application for iPad developed by Notes in Cloud -and named after them- will allow to do all this, and is to be launched in September. That was an idea granted by Direcció de Creativitat i Innovació for Information Technologies -IT-, in their last grant call, which intends to boost and enable technological updating in Barcelona’s cultural landscape.
‘The user will be able to look at the score moving forward while listening to it, choose its pace -tempo, modify its height, look at the different staves of all the instruments involved or just their own, among other options’, Marti Ferrer, co-founder of Notes in Cloud, explained. ‘The user will be able to choose the tune’s size and the score will be automatically redesigned, using the whole screen’.
From the first day, app user will be allowed to delve into the repertoire of the main spanish music publishers -Seemsa, Piles, Joaquin Rodrigo, Dinsic and Boileau-, along with others which are already working on adding content.
Therefore, Notes in Cloud believe this app will be ‘of special interest to amateur and training musicians, and to learning environments -teachers of primary and secondary schools, music schools and conservatories,’ as well as to professional musicians, editors and composers interested in selling their work via the app. ‘They have the peace of mind that comes with knowing the file bought is not accessible to users, so it can’t be sent’ or used unlawfully.
Notes in Cloud app proposal was granted with 5,534€.
