Music Visualisation: Business Models

Thanks perhaps to the predominance of pretty but otherwise low-information-content desktop music visualisers, the wider business opportunities associated with music visualisation may not be immediately apparent. Extending the notion of visualisation to instrumental models and music theory, however, we find ourselves in a greenfield area more or less humming with opportunity.

Potential Crowdfunder?

With mankind on the threshold to a workless era, all the better if these can be used to maximise social value generation in the context of a non-profit organisation. This has the added advantage of reducing potential resentment at the perceived appropriation of cultural heritage. Anyone can contribute, all benefit.

With it's (software) instrument and theory tool factories, the platform generates a slew of finely differentiated instrument and theory tool models well suited to embedding in 3rd party sites. This opens up a scenario where musicians can build their own dedicated teaching site around a low-cost, end-to-end integrated teaching environment.

This is similar to, but goes far beyond what has been achieved by Soundslice, with consequent application of data visualisation techniques for complete mapping and transformation freedom.

This opens up not only multiple revenue channels, but can act as a showplace for the products of musical innovation and research. While there may be little point in trying to hold back technological progress, at least the benefits can be shared by all.

Big, brave, open-source, non-profit, community-provisioned, cross-cultural and starfizzy crazy. → Like, share, back-link, pin, tweet and mail. Hashtags? For the crowdfunding: #VisualFutureOfMusic.
