Idea: Github for Music – The Open Source Music Project

Update: Found it! Two weeks later, this article popped up on TechCrunch: Splice Is GitHub for Musicians. (I wrote this article on Sept 26, TechCrunch article is Oct 9)

What if I could take a bass beat that you created, and a strum that let’s say Julie created and create my own song directly on a web app? It would automatically give attributes to people’s sound-bytes or full songs that I used to build my song.

Someone could then take the song I created, sample bits of it into another song. This would again, automatically attribute me, but also you and Julie.

Since musicians are already doing this, why not create a platform that allows people to easily collaborate and build songs on top of other people’s song, but with proper attribution?

Here are a few awesome open source music sites, but nothing’s quite there.
