Music Match: The Future Of Music?
I recently found a new platform that helps musicians take their music to the next level – you may want to check it out.
If there’s such a thing as a golden age in music, I believe it is now. Digitization has made it possible and hassle-free for artists to reach a wider audience with their music as opposed to the age of Vinyls and CDs, where songs had to be passed out by hand and musical ideas could only be shared in person. Believe it or not but there was a time when you had to go to physical stores to listen to the latest musical releases from some of your favorite artists.
Now with the advent of the internet, an artist in Kampala, Uganda can with the click of a button share his music and have it played in a different continent. Fascinating right? This technological advancement has made it relatively easy for upcoming artists to breakthrough and connect with other creatives from several parts of the world without leaving the comfort of their homes or bed. Exposure is an underlying reason for the growth of this industry and I reckon it is going to get even bigger as the world gets smaller.
As a music enthusiast and creator, I am constantly searching for new ways to enhance my musical experience, whether through connecting with other music lovers online, searching the web for the right sample or just fiddling with ideas. I try to ensure I am in the loop with all the latest technological advances – so when the kind folks at Music Match introduced me to their new music software, it peaked my interest and I became curious to understand the intricacies of how it worked. Thankfully they were more than willing to answer all my questions, which we will get to shortly.
Creating music is fun, however the process can be daunting sometimes when you lack the right inspiration, or music buddy, but with Music Match there’s an an array of hope for people looking to connect with other creatives with similar ideas and taste in music.
Music Match does exactly what the name implies. The service aims to bring together musicians from all corners of the globe and give them an engaging, simple to use instrument, that allows them to get to know each other and collaborate on music.
It’s like a dating app, but for musicians
It’s like a dating app, but for musicians.
Like the popular dating app Tinder, you can swipe left or right to reject or connect matches. You get matched if the composer of that idea swipes your music to the right as well and you can see the basic information about that particular member or song idea.
The platform is created solely around music and has features that allows you take inspiration from thousands of tracks uploaded by fellow composers, comment and react on musical samples, get in touch with other musicians to discuss how to bring a track to the next level.
