Music collaboration firm Kompoz announces the launch of SoundBlend. SoundBlend is an online music store with songs created by people collaborating from around the world.


Kompoz, LLC, a music collaboration firm, announced it has launched a new online music store that features songs created by musicians who write and record songs collaboratively online.

The new store is called SoundBlend. The name refers to the nature of the song creation process -- artists blending their talents to create new original music.

“The music creation process is being revolutionized by global online access to talent,” said Raf Fiol, founder and co-CEO of Kompoz, LLC. “Songs are being created jointly by people who have never met, writing and recording from home studios all around the world. Over 38,000 collaborations have been started on Kompoz.com, and each one is different. A song released on SoundBlend may have been started by a drummer in Seattle and a singer in Austin. And another song started with a bass player in Stockholm and a violinist in Vienna. With the Kompoz platform, artists can now create revenue split agreements online, and then sell their music on SoundBlend. We make sure sales revenue is split and sent to each artist’s PayPal account. Traditional music stores and digital distribution services are not designed to handle these arrangements.“

SoundBlend allows musicians to sell individual digital downloads for each song, license their songs for use in videos and films, and sell their complete economic rights to a song. When songs are sold or licensed, Kompoz pays each collaborator based on the splits defined in the Seller Agreement.

Additional opportunities are available for custom song creation, be it for private parties, for personal use, to custom songs for commercial applications for film, tv, radio and advertising. This new store will be unlike any other, because it is designed from the ground-up with crowdsourced music as the foundation.

“We believe crowdsourced music deserves a new kind of music store; one that embraces global collaboration and empowers independent musicians to sell and profit together," said Steve Gardner, vice president of Kompoz, LLC.
