World Music Aggregator Platform: Project Seeks Sponsors

Why Sponsor?

"At one end, security, clean water, natural food, and a decent education will come at an extraordinary premium that rich people will easily and happily pay. On the other end, most people will eek by using micro-loans, eating cheap food, moving to cities, living off anti-anxiety pills, having roommates, treating drug stores like emergency rooms, and by entertaining themselves at home. Businesses that cheaply meet these needs will succeed". (Arshad Chowdhury)

I insist on a kinder vision of the future. Every share, tweet, follow, comment, post or back-link brings this kindness closer.

Two Ways To Get Us Screeching For Joy


Direct Sponsorship: Making Swiss Money Transfers

If sponsoring from abroad, you might find *this* information useful. Moreover, you will need the following information to transfer money to Switzerland:

Beneficiary: Andrew Douglas Hope
IBAN: CH91 0483 5026 4211 3000 2
BIC Code: CRESCHZZ80A
Bank: Credit Suisse AG

Please note receipt of bank transfer donations cannot be automatically confirmed, so please retain a confirmation of the transfer from your bank. We highly recommend you understand any charges that you may incur by making a donation.

This account was set up to provide transparency to tax authorities until the business model (goal: non-profit, open source) can be finalized. It acts simply (and solely) as a funnel for incoming contributions towards ongoing development. The sooner money comes in, the sooner I can put high-flyers to work.

For further question regarding Bank Transfers, please email a dot douglas dot hope at gmail dot com.

Patreon (Subscription-Based Crowd-Funding)

Patreon is a so called 'subscription-based' crowd-funding platform. It allows sponsors to contribute in regular installments rather than a single lump sum.

Patreon is aimed at bridging the gap between now and the point where the 'Full' crowd-funding campaign can be launched. Depending on success in attracting sponsors, that could be anything up to around six months.

"Critics observe the tension between contributing to the digital Commons, which is fundamentally abundant, and making a living, which is based on scarcity". In flying in the face of clear opportunity, I cannot tell you how pleasperate I am') to see some movement there. :-)

Full Crowd-Funding



Here, for the moment you join potential sponsors awaiting notification of the 'full' crowd-funding project, which is likely to find place on Indiegogo. This can be done by adding your details to the email notification form centered in the cluster of images above.

Email notifications will be kept to an essential minimum (no spamming), and details gathered will not be passed on to third parties.

The choice of crowd-funding platform boils down to payment being guaranteed regardless of outcome. Should this 'full' crowd-funding fail to reach it's target, the money collected would be used to bring the prototype to the point where it can better show the potential benefits. Following this, a further crowd-funding round would be undertaken.

I have no intention of allowing this project fail. Why so determined? I am convinced -absolutely convinced- of it's long-term success. Either it is achieved here, or it will be done by someone else, but with the risk of speculation, and hence revenue optimization pressures. This to the clear detriment of cultural exchange, empowerment and emancipation.


Comments, questions and (especially) critique welcome.
