Startups and change makers leveraging music and music technology to curate a more creative world.
Good Morning!
It’s a new month and the holidays are slowly creeping upon us all but we have some news for you.
Apple purchased an A&R company called, Asaii, which questions whether or not they will utilize this service in their data dashboard. Hopefully for those of us who use that information.
There is a really interesting white paper on why the Music Modernization Act matters and what our next steps are here in the US. It will be interesting to see how this piece of legislation shapes up the industry.
This week the startup we are featuring is called, WaveAI. Their artificial intelligence software wrote a three song EP and it’s really cool how they’re incorporating certain elements of it into a release.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
