I recently had an opportunity to speak with Joseph Cobb, chief marketing officer of AudioCommon. AudioCommon is a web-based platform that allows artists and music lovers to build, communicate and collaborate in new ways. The creators behind this new service are working to redefine the way music and media are created in this day and age of digital connection.
“Music is a work of art.”
Music lovers can use AudioCommon to interact with their favorite artists, garner insight into the music creation process and experience music in a new way, while artists can organize their work and engage fans with a more interactive music experience. AudioCommon users can build teams and work together on any audio content that they upload to the cloud. Even if you don’t have a team, AudioCommon can act as an archive for your work, and artists can use whatever recording system they want in conjunction with AudioCommon.
“We are a team of musicians and hackers.”
The AudioCommon philosophy is that they believe in the power of music and the power of art. This team of MIT musicians and PhD hackers want to redefine the way music is created, organized, and shared. The cloud-based setup of AudioCommon aims to reduce time, money and hassle with these features:
- Secure Communication Portal
- Team-Based Project
- Real-Time Collaboration Interface
“Bringing together the idea and the art.”
Their primary focus has been on building a cloud-based team environment, not cloud-based digital audio workstations or recording systems. They want to aid independent musicians build their careers while staying authentic in their music.
“We’re rolling out a really cool feature soon.”
