Helping academics, librarians and  

students explore music around the world

Imagine a resource that links data on music from around the world with industry trends, commercial facts and the wider social and cultural environment. Music ID is a powerful tool that joins together a diverse selection of resources to reveal what really happened and show the true context in which music was produced. 

Quantify the cultural impact of music.

Data for your insights. See what's invisible to others.

Aristotle, "The soul never thinks without an image".
