Internet Surround Music Project Promotes Multichannel Music Online

TMCnet:  Yesterday, Coding Technologies announced the formation of the Internet Surround Music Project, comprising several major music companies that have come together in an effort to publish more surround music online using the MPEG aacPlus format - which delivers streaming and downloadable 5.1 multichannel audio at 128 Kbps, enabling new applications in the mobile and digital broadcast markets...The project could open new doors for musicians and artists who are interested in creating music for surround environments and will provide a way for artists to get their multichannel music heard by publishing it on the Internet. It also hopes to encourage artists to produce more surround content by running contests where artist submissions are judged and awarded prizes based on quality, originality, and popularity. 

"Our goal in creating the Internet Surround Music Project is to increase awareness of the benefits of surround music for both artists and consumers," said David Frerichs, Vice President and US General Manager for Coding Technologies. "By increasing the amount of surround content being created by artists and distributing that content on the Internet using MPEG aacPlus, the demand for surround music will increase, even beyond the PC."

Artists are encouraged to visit www.tuner2.com for more information to register for the latest contest and to have their music published...
