Maestro Conducts a Nimble Cloud Music API

Garrett Wilkin, July 12th, 2011

Maestro.fmMaestro.Fm wants to take your music experience to cloud nine, maybe even ten.  Actually that could be a little overstated, but at least they are going to use cloud computing to do it.  With a functionality similar to Google Music, a little application runs on your PC and uploads all your music to Maestro.  Once it’s there, it’s augumented with album art, lyrics, and other lovely decorations.  It’s kind of like a music library makeover.  Google already has a thick collection of API services.  Will they be interested in opening Google Music up for developer access?  Don’t wait around and wonder, the Maestfo.fm API is already here.
