Artists, songwriters, producers, engineers – in short – music makers – where is the data on all your work – and you – displayed and stored? The answer is in multiple places all over the internet. Do you know that your data – the information about you and your work – is also a currency from which you make money and that currently millions of pounds/euros each year are either paid to the wrong person or not paid out at all due to the lack of correct data on works and projects? Think of all of the money both you and your collaborators are losing.
So what is the solution?
Spearheaded by Imogen Heap, and working with other music makers and technologists, we have created The Creative Passport – a one stop shop which allows everyone to access data verified by you. So not just your songs for example but who played on them, who mixed and produced them and equipment you used in addition to IDs, acknowledgements, other works, business partners and simple payment mechanisms. Think of it as your personal online footprint.
It will only work however if it is used by music makers around the world, so we are hosting change maker forums where you as music-makers can input into the development of The Creative Passport. Where will we share our vision of how we hope it will evolve. Where we can exchange ideas and have an open dialogue. And where together we can work with Imogen Heap to shape The Creative Passport in what we need it to be.
As part of these forums, we will also have the first beta version of the Creative Passport app available to download and share with other music makers.
