This research introduces Sonicfields, which is an online three-dimensional interactive web application. Sonicfields is a collection of user-generated soundscapes that are designed by placing sounds into 3-D virtual spheres. These sonic-spheres are generated and shared with community by the registered users. Sonicfields provides an experience of exploration through dynamic space that consists of acousmatic soundscapes that appear and disappear according to the navigational pattern of a user. Internet is a massive and constantly growing database. As a consequence of the growth in the content o Internet, browsing through this massive multi-media database is increasingly becoming more exhausting and time consuming. Eventually, the act of browsing is turned into an act of meandering. Sonicfields provides an intuitive exploration through intelligently managed content based on the navigation path of the user. Sonicfields is a developing experiment and a prototype for a new generation of media/content browsing platforms that aim to be intuitive and intelligent. This research will analyze Sonicfields' collective intelligence driven content management system as well as its theoretical background.
