Animal Blocks - Creating Music http://www.cs.umd.edu/hcil/kiddesign/animal_blocks.shtml In our quest to make exciting educational technologies for children, we partnered with Neurosmith, the maker of MusicBlocks. MusicBlocks is an award winning toy which enables very young children to use short musical phrases to create their own compositions. Children can do this by rotating physical blocks and changing their order. Each block plays a particular portion of a song and every shape is associated with a certain instrument or sound.
The creators of MusicBlocks wanted to expand the capabilities of their toy. Therefore, they came to our team to brainstorm new ideas. Together we created the Animal Blocks, software that works with the MusicBlocks hardware.

Music and the Internet Revolution http://www.freepint.co.uk/issues/161100.htm?FreePint_Session=a098974b0203d1f04032dafeee05e359#tips Since the conception of the computer, the music industry has exploded with new opportunities that have been seized by talented entrepreneurs, frustrated musicians and bedroom wannabes alike. Despite attempts from increasingly worried record companies, the accessibility to a wider selection of musical expression and available artists is increasing, bringing with it the inevitable questions of piracy, copyright infringement and licensing.
