This project aims to map the live performance networks of Victorian musicians, and their contributions to the Victorian live music scene. The Melbourne Music Map will be a visualisation of the performance relationships between members of a database of professional, semi professional and amateur musicians who choose to register on a database of live performing musicians. Musicians will be linked according to who they have played with in a live public performance. The database will produce metrics of performing network dynamics; allow registrants to generate their own performance maps and illustrate the network characteristics of live music performer networks in Victoria.
The Melbourne Music Map is a collaboration between the Associate Professor John Fitzgerald (The University of Melbourne) and Adam Simmons (Fat Rain Music).
