online musical collaboration game
Telephenesis is an online game of music creation and recreation. It is modeled after the parlour game "telephone", but uses music instead of phrases.
An artist uploads a piece of music and chooses a spot in the galaxy to place a star that represents their song. Another artist can listen to the song, recreate it in their own style, and place their own star.
When an artist recreates a star, a visible line is drawn between the original and the recreation so that listeners can browse through branching constellations of the evolution of a musical idea as it is interpreted by different artists.

I built both the public-facing website that showcased the artists and an internal application system that allowed them to browse through the thousands of applicants.
The review system is still in use by Found Sound Nation / U.S. Dept. of State, and other government programs have adapted it. I later turned it into another project; ApplyGem.
