INNOVATIVE APPS AND PLATFORMS FOR MUSICIANS AND PROFESSIONALS
As new methods of music distribution are created, and artists increasingly gain direct access to their fans through social media, different platforms and apps offer innovative solutions for musicians and professionals. This project presentation will detail three models for artists interested in monetising music content through technology: Dotlinesdot, BMAT and Patreon.
Dotlinesdot is an online consulting app for music producers, record label A&Rs, booking agents, event promoters, festival managers and communication experts, among other professional roles. BMAT is a platform that helps improve data operations to ensure that artists are paid for their work. Patreon offers a platform to generate a recurring and secure source of income through the direct relationship between artists and their fans.
