Interface for the International Digital Electro-Acoustic Music Archive (IDEAMA). The interface allows to browse and search the archive, listen to the digitalized pieces and to get information about the composers and the pieces themselves. A sonogram view displays the timelined frequencies and allows for quick access to particular parts of the titles. An underlying database gives editors the freedom to easily update the archive. The interface for the archive has been re-developed in 2010 and 2011 to meet the requirements of modern computers. The database software has been used for various other archives including the archive for the Giga-Hertz prize winners.

Exhibited at the ZKM | Museum for Media Art.
