Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) February 20, 2014
AudioCommon, the MIT-founded music/media startup, announced today that it will launch its music collaboration and sharing platform to the public this March at South by Southwest (SxSW) 2014 in Austin, TX.
“This is an important step for our company and the larger music industry,” said AudioCommon Co-Founder and CEO Phil Cohen. “We’re a team of musicians and we care about the independent artist very much. The AudioCommon solution for web-based collaboration is important because we get involved in the creative process before anyone else, and put power and control into the hands of the independent musician.”
Key AudioCommon backers include Sonicbids Founder Panos Panay, Battle Born Studios Lead Engineer, Robert Root, and Atlantic Records artist, Max Frost. Other notable backers will be announced to the public soon.
“AudioCommon gives artists new power within the industry and fans new insight into music,” notes Max Frost. “It will usher in a new age.”
AudioCommon is revolutionizing the way music is created, organized and shared in today's interconnected world. Through AudioCommon's Cloud collaboration platform, musicians and the greater industry can collaborate in new ways during very early stages of the creative process, and share new types of audio content to engage fans with fresh, interactive experiences. In 2013, AudioCommon garnered several awards including the "Best Bootstrapped Company" award at the South by Southwest Music Accelerator event in Austin, TX and the "Notable Startup" award at the SF Music Tech Summit. Already in select classrooms at the world-renowned Berklee College of Music and used by key industry players, AudioCommon has been a welcomed addition in academic, major label and indie communities.
