Sigma and Olander Music & IT launch comprehensive music website
Sigma, in cooperation with Olander Music & IT, has launched an information database for popular music with the URL www.popmusicinfo.com. The website is accessible effective March 6 and contains information on approximately 95,000 song titles.
"This is an old dream that has come true. My interest in music has become a part of my company's operations and thanks to favorable cooperation with Sigma Exallon and its highly dedicated and skilled IT consultants, it is now possible to offer this information on the Internet," says Staffan Olander of Olander Music & IT. The music database has been assembled by Sigma Exallon, which is also responsible for operating the web solution. The content of the database builds on Staffan Olander's great interest in popular music and information gathered over a period of nearly 30 years. PopMusicInfo provides information on popular music with the main focus on Swedish and British records released in the 1960s and, also to a large extent, American music of the 1960s - currently around 95,000 titles on various records. The idea of the music database is to spread information on popular music in various ways. Those interested can, for instance, search for an artist's entire repertoire, have it sorted according to release dates or in alphabetical order. Also, one can see on which albums a certain song existed or was released. If one is looking for a specific record, one can access information on its contents and release date. Users who register on the website will gain wider search possibilities, including searches for information on a specific record company's releases. "It has been a very instructive cooperation with Olander Music & IT and, over and above that, we have gained a large dose of pop music history. At the same time we had the opportunity to try working on completely open source software. Few websites have such an international target group combined with a comprehensive content," says Mats Byback, business manager at Sigma Exallon.
