How can teenagers, especially those with a talent for music, spend time over their long summers?
One option is to explore NoiseTrade. NoiseTrade is a site where musicians can sign up and create their NoiseTrade widget with their music. Visitors can then sample their music through their widgets and download their music. They can also embed the widget in their website or social network. Downloading is free and legal.
NoiseTrade is also a great place to begin exploring new musicians and musical trends.
The FreeSound Project is a collaborative database of sounds. You won't find songs but there is a wealth of sounds to choose from which can be added to presentations and podcasts, for example.
And now that you have a selection of music and sounds, what next? DropTunes is similar to DropBox but instead of documents, you can keep sound files which you can then easily access.
Do you have any favourite sites for music and sounds that you would like to share?
