The Internet of Musical Things (IoMusT) is an interdisciplinary area of knowledge that aims to improve the relationship between musicians and their peers, as well as between musicians and audience members, favoring concerts, studio productions, and music learning. Although emerging, this field already faces some challenges, especially the lack of standardization and interoperability between its devices. Therefore, the paper presents the design of an IoMusT environment, called Sunflower, highlighting its architecture, protocols, and sound features that can contribute to solving this interoperability problem.
