We describe an architecture currently under design and implementation at the University of Bath whose purpose is the provision of a net-wide musical service, building on previous experience in the development and deployment of mathematical Web services (MONET) as well as long standing involvement in sound synthesis (CSound). The structure and components of this architecture are discussed, and a number of sample applications are presented, to show the scope of the capabilities of this architecture. A particular motivation for the development of this architecture is to provide the means to have music where ever we go, whether delivered on a workstation, laptop or palm-held device. This opens up a number of possibilities for performance or personal delight.
