Virtual Bands - Collaborative Music on the Internet (diploma thesis)

My diploma thesis from the year 2005 is about creating a web platform for creating collaborative music. It researches options to create a community with a variety in its users and styles, which is seldomly enountered in conventional band structures.

Besides technical and economic aspects, the thesis primarily investigates the social potential of such a platform. It describes ways to promote community and engagement between its members. All in a time where Facebook still resided at thefacebook.com and was only available to students of US collages.

The supervisors were Prof. Dr. Bruno Friedmann and Prof. Dr. Fritz Steimer. The thesis was graded with 1,0 (A+).
