Listen to and tag thousands of music tracks on Europeana's radio player
Europeana Sounds, a project that connects digital sound archives across Europe, has just launched an interactive radio player.
Now you can enjoy listening to 200,000 music tracks, and while listening, add labels to help other listeners to find recordings.
The player and tagging are very easy to use and no sign-up is required:
- Press the play button in the player below to hear a recording
- Select a term in the list shown in the 'Refine the music genre' box, then press 'Add'
- Use the buttons below the play window to pause a recording, or to jump to the next
- You can also select Classical, Folk, or Popular music genres
- So, listen & tag!
On Thursday, Europeana Sounds will be holding a #TagDayThursday. We want to gather as many new genre tags in Europeana Radio as possible – you can help us make this happen! A progress bar can be seen at www.europeana.eu/portal/en/radio.html
