Delicious Playtagger now working

The Delicious Playtagger is a handy tool that automatically adds a play button to any link to an mp3. UDP contributors need only post a url to an mp3 file (whether uploaded to this site or elsewhere), and no additional embed code is required. For instance:


embedding an external mp3





embedding a local mp3

[[Attach:UDP./blahblahblah.mp3 | my mp3]]

June 2011 – Upload .. Download .. Perform . net in the news, plus an interview with Adam Overton about UDP!
Friends! My great old friend Jacob Feinberg has released a really wonderful audio interview we did back in March on his new blog Resources for New Music! In it I ramble on about http://UploadDownloadPerform.net, Signify, Sanctify, Believe, and various other topics related to performance, religion, performance-as-social-practice, and more (it's about 40 mins).


Plus, in his previous blog post, Fresh ideas in online distribution of experimental scores, he writes specifically about Upload .. Download .. Perform . net and the history of performance score distribution & exchange - I think this is the first time in its almost-3-year existence that anyone's thought to write about the site!


I'm very proud of the site and our chat - please check it out! Thank you, Jake!

October 2010 Update

  • Happy 2nd birthday Upload .. Download .. Perform . net
  • Scribd embedding has now been enabled, which means that pdf scores (and other formats as well) can now be viewed on the page by uploading your document(s) first to Scribd.com, and then copying & pasting the embed code onto the score page. Here's an example page with a score embedded. (ao, 28 October 2010, at 02:35 AM PDT)

Winter 2009 Updates

  • the pagecounter has died : (   ... pagecounts were lost, so we're starting over. we'll turn them back on once they're not so dismal...
  • YouTube, Vimeo, GoogleVideo & Audioo: users can now simply copy-&-paste the necessary embed-code, and UDP will automatically convert it into valid, easy-to-read wiki-code. PLUS, many more parameters have been added for each, including width, height, autoplay, and more. See FAQ#embed for more details.  (20 December 2009, at 03:27 AM PDT)
  • archive.org video and audio can now be embedded on UDP - just copy the embed code at archive.org, and paste it in to any edit window. (20 December 2009, at 04:50 AM PDT)
  • fixed a number of small bugs here and there (20 December 2009, at 03:27 AM PDT)

900+ scores as 9/9/09 !!
yes, Upload .. Download .. Perform . net's 900th score was added on 9/9/09 by a new visitor. this was totally unexpected, unintended, unstaged... trippy



Two tiny updates

  • Artists can now change their profiles to Group Projects if they want - see Changing your profile to a Group Project in the FAQ (15 September 2009, at 03:05 PM PDT)
  • Artists can now change the default way their scores are listed/sorted on their Index page (17 September 2009, at 03:05 PM PDT)

FRIDAY, 4 March 2009
UDP v.2.0 !!
With all the great uploads coming in over the past 10 months, the site was starting to slooooow dooowwwwwn, with pageloads of up to 10seconds! But no more! - I've optimized the site architecture, and cleaned up [almost] every square inch of code. The site's now fit and ready for more and more-er. On the surface, not much has really changed, just a lot of cleaning up tiny details, plus a couple new features:


  • you can now set up a default set of keywords, durations, etc, on the 'Uploads' page - which will be automatically added to any new pages you create (02 August 2009, at 05:06 AM PDT)
  • follow UDP on Twitter! (02 August 2009, at 05:06 AM PDT)
  • the Creative Commons license icons throughout the site have been udpated to the most recent versions (v.3.0). these more specific license icons have been added to each Artist's Index page, as well as to the bottom of every score page. for more info visit: CreativeCommons  (15 August 2009, at 06:14 AM PDT)
  • Artists can now include pages from another website on their page by using the following markup: (:includeurl http://someOtherWebsite.com:). This will embed the other website page in a window on your page (note that it doesn't work for all websites). Additional arguments for this markup can be found here: IncludeUrl. Please use this feature wisely, as copyright issues do apply.  (15 August 2009, at 06:14 AM PDT)


Plus, some cleaning up has happened:

  • "last updated" dates are now more accurate and reliable (ao, 03 September 2009, at 06:50 PM PDT)
  • the Keywords, Duration, Materials, and NumPerformers pages are now fully populated - they were incomplete until now, even if folks had entered in their various tags (ao, 03 September 2009, at 06:50 PM PDT)





Summer Updates UPDATE
A MAJOR conversion of the site's architecture occurred over 7/31-8/1/09 - still working the bugs out, but it looks like it's working. Thanks for your patience as I get it all smoothed out, and please report any bugs you encounter along the way. I'll post a full list of new features and changes as soon as the shift is completed. (ao, 01 August 2009, at 04:49 PM PDT)



Summer Updates
In order to the speed up the site, I'm in the process of redesigning how information for artists and scores is stored. Other than quicker pageload times, most changes to the site won't even be noticed. However, there will inevitably be small bugs here and there; if you discover any, please Contact me. (ao, 20 May 2009, at 02:30 AM PDT)


. . .


Spring Updates

  • the random score function (see the sidebar) is now working much much better; before, artists with more scores would come up more often, whereas artists with fewer scores (or perhaps just one score) would rarely ever come up. now, the randomness algorithm first randomly chooses an artist, and then chooses a random score from that artist, which dramatically increases the chances of coming across an artist with fewer uploaded scores. for those who miss the old might-is-right random score method, don't worry, you can still get it here:  (7 may 2009)
  • a bug that was removing dashes (-) from the titles of scores (when uploading files) has been removed... (7 may 2009)
  • instead of leaving the "Year" empty when creating new score pages, new scores are now assigned a default year [thisYear] (which of course can be changed afterward)... (6 may 2009)
  • Upload .. Download .. Perform . net now permits quick and easy sharing of pages and scores on facebook, twitter, delicious and various other social bookmarking sites... just rollover the "share" link in the upper right of the page to begin letting the world know... (3 may 2009)
  • after flooding the pagecount code with enough pagehits to break it, the pagecounts are now working again several days later... (22 april 2009)
  • added support for embedding audioo.com content - see FAQ#embedding for details... (2 march 2009)
