what you'll do

The problem we’re tackling is to how to make music more sustainable. To this end, we’re building an online distribution platform geared towards supporting cultural institutions, providing them with tools to create more opportunities around creative, not-overtly-commercial (you know, good) music. It’s an opinionated app which aims to guide the dialogue around the future of intellectual property through new ways of engaging the marketplace: leveraging financial context and transparency, providing education along the way, requiring engagement from audiences. Without revealing too much, the bet is that a holistic approach to music creation, distribution and consumption will become a self-perpetuating engine, as it will present real value to all principles involved—artists, audiences, institutions.
