Adrian Holovaty and PJ Macklin’s new music transcription website is quite lovely.

It’s also immensely clever on several levels: it surfaces lively musical metadata over previously flat videos; it makes extensive use of cutting-edge browser APIs; it crowd-sources content creation; it has the potential to become a genuine cultural resource.

Plus, Soundslice is fun. I was all smiles when putting together a transcription of Clifford Brown’s great tune, Joy Spring.

Adrian is best known as the co-creator of Django but it turns out he’s one hell of a guitarist too.
