Sydney, Australia (PRWEB) May 29, 2008
It's always been a struggle for musicians and sound artists to make a living, but thanks to the internet, many are now taking their careers into their own hands. A new breed of stock audio site is allowing artists to expose and sell their work to a far broader demographic than they ever could have before.
AudioJungle.net, launched this month, is an online marketplace where members can buy and sell music and sound effects. The site has quickly built up a library of over 2,000 audio items from a broad spectrum of artists.
Adrien Gardiner of ADG3.com is one of these artists and has previously composed music spots for Nokia and Microsoft. He now has 380 items for sale on AudioJungle and his compositions have sold over 800 times.
"Things have changed for the better within the music industry in the last few years. The web has given me unprecedented access to work opportunities. Thanks to AudioJungle I can showcase my work to over 50,000 members and participate in the community. I also make money by selling my files and make new contacts for freelance work."
Vahid Ta'eed, CEO of Eden, the company that built AudioJungle says "There are so many undiscovered musicians all over the world that are brimming with talent. The great thing about AudioJungle is that location and social connections cease to be the make or break for a sound artists career. A sound effect specialist in Portugal can sell their work to a web designer in Montreal - there are no restrictions. Talent becomes the all-important factor."
AudioJungle.net launched May 2008 and is the sister site to the massively popular website, FlashDen.net. AudioJungle's members buy and sell their music and effects and participate in a thriving musical community. AudioJungle is part of a network of sites including FlashDen.net, PSDtuts.com, BlogActionDay.org, and FreelanceSwitch.com.
