The 14th of October Meludia was attending the Mama Event in Paris, the yearly convention of the music industry. This was the opportunity for discovering the hottest trends and tools specially dedicated for musicians. We have selected 4 innovative start-ups that help musicians collaborate, distribute and sell their music all around.
You just found out a great melody on your piano or your guitar and you dream of a drummer who could add his groove to it? Go to Jamshake!
Jamshake is a web platform that helps you make music at distance with musicians from all over the world. It allows musicians to meet, exchange and compose together in real time owing to an online sequencer : The JamStudio.
Basically what happens is that you start creating your musical profile with, for example, your favourite music styles, your instrument. Once your profile is completed you can start off your first musical project in the Jamstudio. Even better § you can invite musicains of your network or other talents from the community to join you for your recording. Each of them can add their sonic tracks and change the existing ones (except for the tracks you have locked). You can as well contribute to projects set up by other musicians.
