The Codex: Our Music Exploration Tool
Upon this planet is made music you will never hear...because there are no connections between you and it nor between you and the people who make it.
So we built a can-opener for the music universe, whereby everybody can conceivably reach everybody else via a series of steps. I connect to you, you connect to her, she connects to them, they connect to him...and somebody on the cold steppes of Mongolia can -- after a series of moves, or maybe even just one -- shake up and shimmy down to sounds baked in a hot Rio favela (ghetto).
This is not revolutionary software (Bach didn't invent the clavichord, nor Joyce the book). It is a simple but revolutionary use of software -- word-of-mouth via fiber optics and satellite connections -- conceived in the secure knowledge that the most powerful music recommendation software ever written is the human mind.

Something African became something Brazilian.
