I can't remember the reason for the IMDBP. Is it basically the same as the IMSLP, but with actual recordings?

There are three goals of the IMDBP.

* IMDBP strives to categorize every single piece of music ever written in a format that is

1. Flexible, extensible
2. Thorough, uncompromising detail
3. Efficient and intuitive to use for the average user, including the elimination of duplicate information entry and other potential inconsistencies

* IMDBP also strives to be a place to discuss music, and software that facilitates this in the most user friendly manner is in planning.

* IMDBP will also supply the information to other websites, such as the IMSLP, that requests it. This will ensure that there is no duplication of information, and avenues of potential inconsistencies, across such websites.

I'll say more later, I'm leaving to uni.
