The new app will allow singers, songwriters and producers, among other music professionals, to connect, collaborate and promote their talent by sharing their ongoing musical ideas with a global community.
SoundStorming says about nine out of 10 artists go undiscovered, so the new tool could change the way musicians and ideas are discovered.
The modern musician constantly saves song ideas on his phone, which means there are many potential songs that are never shared or developed further. The new app gives users access to beats, beats, melodies, remixes and collaborations that would typically not be on display.
“We see ourselves as connecting the fragmented worlds of music creation, collaboration and distribution in one place,” said SoundStorming co-founder, CEO and musician Arnau Bosch.
Together with Alicia Rius, co-founder and COO of SoundStorming, Bosch created the new mobile app, which allows musicians to record, share and brainstorm with other artists on a social platform, opening up a new wave of collaboration and innovation.
An artist, for example, can record a melody, and another musician on the other side of the globe can collaborate on it and put a new spin on the original song. The platform has an automatic timestamp feature that ensures that each musician owns the rights to their own contribution to the composition.
The app could become hugely popular with musicians around the world as countries embark on lockdowns amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bosch says the app’s appeal also lies in its simplicity: “Just save, share, then collaborate.” Music is the number one category on social media, making it a potentially powerful tool for discovering artists, but musicians typically engage with audiences through content that has nothing to do with music on these platforms.
“SoundStorming is about talent, not looks, making it the first true social music platform. I’d like artists to understand the power they have with their ideas and can give them the tools to really use these ideas.”
Meanwhile, Music In Africa has compiled a list of four apps, in French, that could be useful for musicians in the midst of a pandemic.
