Now in 2011 the auditorium has finally evolved in something else.
TheSixtyOne.com (web-based streaming music site) reinvents music discovery for iPad and creates “Aweditorium”.
Aweditorium presents you with a vast grid of darkened photographs of bands and solo artists. Tap on an image and it fills the screen while a song from the act begins playing.
You can read news and facts about the artist, watch related videos from YouTube or Vimeo, share the song on Facebook and Twitter, read the lyrics of the song and buy music from iTunes.
Aweditorium gives back to the digital music what the digital music had lost: the inspiring and evocative emotion of an album art and its related tactile experience.
In the word of James Miao, Thesixtyone co-founder: “Digital music interfaces look like Excel spreadsheets – what kind of backwards society do we live in where we’re limiting the genius of a Thom Yorke or Trent Reznor to a single vertical column?”
All in one place.
