Adagio is a music technology company...
...committed to improving the way that musicians use the internet: from the new musician just getting started and in need of a teacher, to the practicing musicians looking for partners, to people who just want to play.

Adagio powers the next generation of music and science education, bringing a sound recording studio to any device using web technologies and the cloud. Using Adagio's analysis tools, a student may experience and interact with the sounds contained in an audio project in interesting ways that deepen the educational experience.
A built-in oscilloscope, for example, will allow a student to see a graphical representation of the sounds being played in the mixer. These visual sound waves further an understanding of musical pitch and timbre by relating these concepts to wave frequency and amplitude. This analysis capability makes Adagio a powerful tool for teaching about waves, as required in emerging education standards.
We are seeing unprecedented activity in the amateur music scene, and the internet is enabling and encouraging users to create, but for all of this encouragement, the internet is lacking a convenient, accessible way to foster collaboration -- playing together, creating together, learning together, with the type of technology it takes to make these experiences truly valuable.
This is particularly relevant to the thousands of musicians who are using private lessons as a mean to supplement their income from performing, or teachers who need added income from what their current institutions can afford.
This is most evident when looking at companies attempting to provide online music lessons. There was a big boom when people realized that lessons could be offered using video chat, but in most instances interest has petered off due to the fact that this technology provides no additional value beyond attempting to emulate an in-person lesson.
Building a social recording platform that provides new opportunities in music education, collaboration and performance.
Our first product launch will be Booth.fm - a platform for musicians to collaborate with each other on a social level as well as a space for students and educators to connect.
