OpenLedger and MUSE bring blockchain benefits to music industry

The MUSE platform is a brand-new third-generation blockchain based on the Graphene Toolkit and specifically tailored to meet the music industry’s needs. It can be viewed as a membership organisation in the cloud that acts as a global database for copyright-related information. It is designed for all music-related payments – including royalties, music sales, merchandise and concert ticket sales.

Vivalist's insight:

"One [interesting] feature worth mentioning are the Tokens: limited and tradeable tokens that artists can use to give fans a VIP pass into their world, offering anything from discounts on merchandise to concert tickets and backstage passes, and even advertiser give-aways. Tokens are a tool that helps the undiscovered artist gain exposure while helping the already discovered artist engage with his or her fan base."

Keeping the rights to your music and licensing are even more important now a days. The amount of old music used to sell things and present other forms of media are at an all time high I feel.

Christopher Vaughn's curator insight, September 13, 2016 12:59 PM

In the ever changing world of music this is a ground breaking change to how royalties, fees, and charges can be handled. I think that this is big news because of how much i have seen as far as artists suing labels over royalties and  vice versa. The bitcoin has just started to stand out as a profitable avenue to generate funds so with music, making sure there are no licensing problems are key, and making sure everyone involved with the project gets paid their dues is very important.

Chris Milk: the digital artist making music videos fly into the future

Chris Milk: the digital artist making music videos fly into the future | relevant entertainment |

From Kanye West and the Johnny Cash Project to Beck and virtual reality, the video director and tech pinup – whose mother taught him to code as a child – has become a hero of the post-MTV age

Vivalist's insight:

Chris Milk is a true 21st century artist. The fact that he learned to code at an early age is very relevant. His collaboration is Aaron Koblin are mind blowing and he can also truly shine on his own - as the Lincoln Hello Again project shows it

The Digital Rocking Chair's curator insight, July 3, 2014 5:05 AM

Simon Parkin:  'Milk wants to create art that can impact millions simultaneously, so he’s turned to virtual reality, which is set to make a triumphant return in the form of the Oculus Rift, VR goggles built from smart-phone technology. He is unequivocal about it: VR is what will succeed film as the “future of storytelling” and the “next great canvas for human expression”.'
