    Default IMSLP's The Orchestral Musician's CD-ROM Library (OM) Project

    1 January 2009

    Dear Talk Classical Members,

    First of all I’d like to wish you a happy and prosperous new year and I hope you had a wonderful pre New Year holiday season. - To welcome the new year, I’m looking for expression of interest in an upcoming proposed IMSLP project. The Project involves the acquisition of The Orchestra Musician’s CD-ROM Library ( and it’s upload onto IMSLP to access by all IMSLP users.

    The OM Library is an extremely vast and priceless piece of information for the musical community, unlike the vast majority of IMSLP, the OM Library cares for the performing musicians; it provides parts for users to play rather than study that, in all practical situations proves mostly useless to perform with. This does not take away the usefulness of study, full, or reduction scores as they all play a huge role in the musical community. The addition of these scores to IMSLP will help improve IMSLP as well as provide amateur musicians to professional (and all in between) musicians free playable scores.

    Since the project is of such a large scale (a rough estimate of ≈ 20 gigabytes) volunteers will be needed to fill several positions in main areas including (but not limited to):
    * Administration
    * Score Farming
    * Logo Removal
    * Copyright

    Details on what these partitions involve and any requirements for the roles can be found here.
    This is a semi-long-term project, but the more volunteers the quicker it will be completed. If you are interested in contributing to the project in any way, please contact me at
    yagankiely {at} and please include the role you wish to fill. I implore you to read what is involved in the roles before contacting me. You can request to join any of the main roles, but bear in mind that Logo Removal and Score Farming (in that order) will require the most volunteers, while administration will require the least. Any small contribution will help the project along it’s way.
    Let me repeat that this is of eminent value to the community and a priceless acquisition not just of IMSLP, but of you. Please help it come alive - yagankiely {at}

    Sincerely yours,
    Yagan Kiely B.mus., Composer, IMSLP Administrator
