Self-governed and decentralised technology network for audio industries.
The Music industry has faced radical change since the rise of the digital age. This rapid change has paved the way for large centralised structures to establish themselves by solving inefficiencies around music publishing, payment and legal contracts using economies of scale. However, solving inefficiencies through economy of scale merely masks the real problem. This ultimately has lead to a 50 billion dollar music industry where the top tier are catered for and the incentive to change the industry from what it is to what it should be is non-existent.
Emanate is building an Audio Exchange Protocol designed to evolve the music industry into the blockchain era, allowing artists to be paid in real-time, to collaborate globally without the need of trust. This could bring much needed efficiency and transparency to the music industry. Emanate plans to create a self governing decentralised organisation that will align the incentives of all the music industry participants.
Emanate is utilising decentralised technology to create an ecosystem that will significantly change the industry by not only removing inefficiencies within the industry but also creating more opportunities for artists to turn their dreams into reality. This new ecosystem aligns the incentives of everyone in the value chain and supply chain with creativity at the center.
Emanate’s platform will allow artists to collaborate globally without needing to trust the other parties. All music is protected via blockchain ‘Smart Collaborations’. Each time artists collaborate an agreement is executed on the ledger. This brings clear transparency to the artists, and for the music producers and record labels it expedites the processes of dealing with multiple parties and long negotiations. This will all be achieved directly from the artists DAW workflow making it incredibly seamless.
Artists will be able to upload their backlog of original songs, stems and samples for rapid monetisation. Artists can capitalise on other artists who utilize their sound parts in their songs. The best part - the payments occur instantly.
3rd Party Integration
Emanate provides one place on the internet for artists to store their completed works. The Audio Exchange Protocol is designed to make it possible for any 3rd party to consume this audio with payments made accordingly, in real-time. The possibilities in a world moving towards AR, VR and AI are endless.
