SoundCloud. Lately I have been noticing it on Facebook as a way people are sharing their own music. It's tricky to share mp3 files on Facebook and this seems like a neat solution. It's also tricky to share mp3s on a blog, so I'm going to find out today how this works for me and maybe some of you will be inspired to check it out too.
SoundCloud was launched in 2008 and is apparently growing by 1.5 million users every month. When you upload an audio file you have the choice of making it public or private. Then you can share in a variety of ways including email, Facebook, Twitter or with a widget on your blog or website like you see below.
You have to register in order to upload your own sounds (it's free), but I believe you can explore and listen to music without registering. You, my friendly readers are part of my experiment.
Below you should see the SoundCloud widget, which is displaying my set of solos from Garden Capriccio. Enjoy!
