Music Site [Beta] **3rd Repost**

We are looking for a fast developer to realize a beta version of a Music Site project. We will provide design, logo, etc. You will program the functionality.


This site is a closed system and is not for the public. It has 2 logins, one for "Buyers" and one for "Artists". Both will be invitees, there is no open registration, we will need to set up accounts in an administrator area.

Buyers can - (a) see their account info and project briefs (b) can set up a project (c) search for music with tags (1-3 prelisted genre handles that will feed the search feature) (d)bookmark artists (e)invite/message an artist to a project

There should be a welcome page for buyers and a project page. Buyers set up projects and invite artists to submit work to the project. They can also put samples up for the invited artists to listen to. The project page the buyer see's is where they enter details on each project and store mp3s, pdfs (later on phase 1 we will have video but not on beta).

Artists can- (a) edit their public profile where they stock their portfolio with songs that are associated with genres (for searching). (b) respond to messages/invites by buyers and upload mp3's to buyer's projects

Artists cannot see other other artists and they cannot see buyers pages unless they are invited. If an artist is invited to submit to a buyer they get an email sent to them with a URL to the project. Only if the URL matches and the user is who they say they are they can login to upload to the project.

The buyer can listen to the tracks artists upload to projects. Next to each track is a “get quote” button. Clicking this button will send a message to the administrator who will contact the client to work out the particulars.

The important thing is that the administrator remain an invisible observer throughout the creative part of the process. Only the administrator should be able to create logins and manage accounts or have real contact between buyers and artists. Buyers and artists do NOT share email addresses just intra-site invites/messages.


-Buyer search for artist is in a 'coverflow' mini component built with javascript/ajax (or flash) like that seen here ([url removed, login to view])

-Buyer seach for artist larger search is like coverflow larger.

- The administrator account needs to be able to set up projects, deposit media into the special project area and retrieve files deposited by participating musicians.

- Administrator needs to be able to search musician profiles as well.

- Administrator needs to be able to message both buyers and artists.


We will set up 10-15 beta-testers on the Musician side for the Phase 1 Test Site. Design of the test site must keep in mind the goal of thousands of Arsists and hundreds of Buyers that will eventually inhabit the network.

Additional Description:

This is not a myspace community site clone. The site is a test. The goal of the Phase 1 is to establish the look and feel of the brand which we have already designed down to the details. This site will simply demonstrate the functionality of the site and gauge the viability of the business model. To do this we must have a site that is fully functional on a micro-scale.

IMPORTANT: Lastly, we have posted this project 3 times and bidders that have won have always scammed us, this is the last post on GAF. Our first winner simple disappeared after winning, the second was a bidding scam artist and the third was a mixed up bunch of Indians. We do not want to work with Indian companies at this point as they have continually scammed us. If you expect to be paid upfront and not deliver any work than DO NOT BID, WE DO NOT HAVE TIME TO WASTE.
