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 Wins Prestigious 2011 Bully Award

Tribe of Noise, connecting musicians and business, was announced today as a Young Bull winner of the 2011 Bully Award honouring Europe’s leading technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) companies as presented by White Bull Summits, champions of the European innovation ecosystem.

A total of 60 European companies were named as finalists for the 2011 Bully Award, and the deserving winners were selected from a pool of entries that included hundreds of nominated European TMT companies.

The winners fall into three categories:

  • Yearlings: firms that seek or have received angel/seed rounds or equivalent; classic start-ups
  • Young Bulls: firms that seek or have received Series A financing; early stage companies
  • Longhorns: post Series A firms; growth stage companies

“The Bully Award winners were selected for innovation and values of excellence in the TMT sector. They have been recognized as a leader in their field, with a bright business proposition and meaningful market strategies, driven by a rich understanding of customer needs and technological solutions,” stated Farley Duvall, Founder and Chairman of White Bull Summits.

“We’re of course very honoured to be named a 2011 Bully Award winner, and to be recognized as one of the leading TMT companies in Europe,” stated Hessel van Oorschot, CEO at Tribe of Noise. “It’s validating to be named a winner for this prestigious award, and we accept and share it with the entire Tribe of Noise community.”

Tribe of Noise winner at White Bull Summits 2011Tribe of Noise connects musicians and business online by focussing and bypassing the music publishing industry.

“The White Bull judges very carefully reviewed seed-stage, early-stage and growth-stage companies, and selected the winning companies they believe have demonstrated clear potential for further growth and a high probability for exit in the next few years,” added Duvall.

White Bull has a successful track record in identifying Europe’s leading TMT companies. Eight of the 2010 Bully Award winners identified by White Bull were acquired in the past year including BuyVIP (acquired by Amazon), JayCut (acquired by RIM), Q-go (acquired by RightNow Technologies), Severa Corp (acquired by Visma Group), SunglassesShop.com (acquired by Glasses Direct), Ubitexx (acquired by RIM), Vilant Systems Oy (merged RFID activities with Swisscom Auto-ID Services AG), and WatchMouse (acquired by CA Technologies).
