dear lovely musicians,
want to be a part of something fun that may make life a little easier for all of us?Â
Iâ€™ve been working with the genius digi-gnomes at the Imperial College Dept Of Social Computing for over a year on a music sharing app/platform. Itâ€™s been through a few revisions, and we want to give it a trial now.
If youâ€™re up for being involved, all that would happen is youâ€™d get to download the app, and could then upload your music. There wonâ€™t be any financial transactions in the trial version of the app (though it will be a really interesting proof of concept to see if anyone who hears you chooses to go outside of the app in order to pay you for your music!) – so thereâ€™s no money in it, but there is some potential audience, and the chance to play with something very cool before anyone else. You need to have the rights to all your music – if you’re legally allowed to put it on bandcamp, you can put it here as well.
So, if youâ€™ve got at least one album youâ€™re happy to upload into the system (youâ€™ll have the option to remove it again before any properly live version of the app goes out to the general publique.) let me know and Iâ€™ll send you an invite as soon as the appâ€™s available (in the next couple of days)
Â Sound good? of course it sounds good. Call me, mâ€™kay?Â
I’m definitely interested, since I’ll have my first album done within the next month or so. My main question is, is this a mobile app? If it is, that precludes me, not being rich enough to not have to choose between music and a smartphone. Thanks!
Darren, it’s OK, it’s desktop only, for now. Porting to mobile would be easy, but it’s not happened yet. one step at a time 🙂
