Tribe of Noise launches online service for rights-inclusive music

Award-winning music community Tribe of Noise announces the official launch of PRO, a paid online service for the licensing of rights-inclusive music. Tribe of Noise will unveil its new service at Cannes where the largest music conference in the world, Midem, is to be held on January 30, 2012.

PRO is a ground breaking concept designed to connect the creativity of talented artists with media professionals who are seeking great music for their projects. PRO eliminates the need for music publishers, labels, and management organizations, while maintaining an easy-to-use and transparent platform that allows musicians and professionals to connect directly. Finding the right music for a professional’s next project is as simple as logging in to the website and listening to the selections of licensed music.Tribe of Noise PRO

Named by Microsoft as one of the most promising tech start ups of 2011, Tribe of Noise tested its services in the commercial industry over the course of the year. Brands such as Hunkemöller, KIA Motors and Nelly.com, expressed enthusiastic responses about the quality of Tribe of Noise’s music they found on the beta version of PRO. Since then, Tribe of Noise has been approached by international music supervisors, advertising agencies, video producers, and other media professionals who have been in discussion about upgrading the product.

For media professionals who do not find the sound that they are looking for, PRO provides a space for virtual briefings on their website. Here, professionals can immediately approach thousands of Tribe of Noise artist members with their visions for their projects so that the members can create music tailored to the professional’s needs.

“Our main objective behind PRO is to provide musicians with a platform on which they can share their music without having to sacrifice the musician’s independence in how they do so,” said Hessel van Oorschot, CEO at Tribe of Noise. “PRO makes use of the latest communication techniques and social networking which has had a remarkable effect in allowing musicians to cooperate and work with fellow musicians from around the world.”

“What makes Tribe of Noise different from the usual social networks? Tribe of Noise is focused on business opportunities, including licensing of my music for video productions, games and documentaries, and also has a team of enthusiastic community managers, sales and legal advisors to support me,” said Mary Jennings, Tribe of Noise artist and New York based successful singer-songwriter. “I can always just call and this personal approach makes Tribe of Noise unique.”

Tribe of Noise and GoAnimate experience the amount of talented  individuals online is infinite. To amplify the creative strength of  their niche communities, one with musicians and one with animators, they  are now facilitating cross platform collaboration for the production of  animated music videos.

Hessel van Oorschot, Founder and CEO of Tribe of Noise: “Recently TED’s Chris  Anderson said the rise of web video is driving a worldwide phenomenon he  calls Crowd Accelerated Innovation, a self-fueling cycle of learning  that could be as significant as the invention of print. With this  contest GoAnimate and Tribe of Noise are creating the framework for  creative music and animation talent around the Globe, to meet, to create  and to have fun!”

“GoAnimate was created to let everyone make their own animations easily  and animated music video has always been a big genre on our site.  Our  previous programs with AKON and Willie Nelson generated massive  attention and showed us what a powerful combination animation and music  truly is”, states Alvin Hung, Founder and CEO of GoAnimate.  “We are  excited to work hand-in-hand with Tribe of Noise to extend the platform  to musicians around the globe.”

HandBookLive.com is pleased to announce a partnership with Tribe of Noise

HandBookLive.com is pleased to announce a partnership with Tribe of Noise, a Netherlands-based organization which helps connect musicians with professionals who need music.  HandBookLive was introduced to the company when invited by the Dutch government to attend an international conference in Amsterdam last month.

The relationship between the two companies will allow HandBookLive’s vendors to request custom music from Tribe of Noise artists or use Creative Commons licensed music for free in their product videos. This alliance is one of several ways that HandBookLive has made it easy for companies to produce product and service video guides.

Formed in September 2010, the new partnership will allow HandBookLive corporate customers to purchase custom music economically or license existing music for free from Tribe of Noise. In turn, Tribe of Noise musicians will receive increased exposure and potentially new paid assignments through referrals from HandBookLive.com. An expansion of HandBookLive’s services to its business clients, the company also offers step-by-step guides for organizations that desire to produce a video, as well as a database of HandBookLive certified videographers across the country who are trained to produce educational product and service videos.

Laura Beken, Co-Founder and Vice President of HandBookLive.com, says, “Tribe of Noise’s passion to help musicians promote their work makes them a natural choice for HandBookLive. Our philosophies are very similar; we want to help businesses of all sizes succeed.”

Hessel van Oorschot, CEO of Tribe of Noise, states, “HandBookLive is a dynamic company with a great business sense and focus on consumer needs. We are very pleased that Tribe of Noise artists will gain increased exposure from this partnership with HandBookLive.”

Virtual DJs play your music on TV

Amsterdam, September 19, 2009
Last week iTunes announced the comeback of the LP in digital format. Old songs get their second life in video games like Guitar Hero. And mobile apps like TheGigMap give you instant access to live gigs around the corner. Innovation in music is all around us; via digital and multimedia channels they tap into new markets.
One of the latest music initiatives is the ‘Twinners Music on TV’ pilot.
Music on TV? Isn’t MTV claiming this space since the early eighties? You are absolutely right. However, the Twinners initiative is a new interactive TV format powered by SBS, the second largest broadcaster in Europe.
Instead of a remote control your cell phone interacts with a virtual you (so called avatar) on TV. During the live TV shows you can chat, dance, visit cool places and listen to indie music played by virtual DJs.
The music played on TV is created by a worldwide group of independent musicians from the online music community Tribe of Noise. For them it is an additional opportunity to generate exposure: Two hundred million people are watching SBS worldwide. Although the TV pilot just started in Denmark on Channel 4 and 5 this week, more countries are expected to be added in the near future reaching a crowd of millions of people. An audience only signed artists like Madonna and U2 used to reach.
“Together with our Tribe members and business partners we focus on generating exposure and developing new revenue models for musicians“, says Hessel van Oorschot, co-founder of Tribe of Noise. “This pilot is a great opportunity for them and leading media enterprises to develop a future business model we all believe in.”
“According to music industry gurus the golden decades of the traditional music industry are over. So let’s focus on the opportunities ahead of us and empower independent musicians with all the innovative tools they need. Virtual DJs playing their music on TV is one of them.”
