Le site www.emotuned.com propose une application web riche qui permet aux compositeurs de vendre gratuitement leur musique (100% des royalties).
Elle utilise Dropbox pour le stockage des fichiers (solution décentralisée) et offre ainsi une gestion rapide et des fichiers non compressés (Apple Lossless ou FLAC).
Elle apporte également la mise en relation des compositeurs avec des "cover" artistes (chanteurs, arangeurs, compositeurs pro, etc.), et une gestion communautaire pour la validation des releases.
This new site, available as a rich web application (iTunes like, made using Cappuccino - Cocoa web framework - and CSS3) allows indie composers to sell their music for free (full royalties - minus Papal fees), with a HD quality (lossless 16bit or 24bit), fair pricing (5$/euros for a 10 tracks albums) and fair ranking system (open).
It uses Dropbox service as a decentralized approach and low cost/lite infrastructure (also allows artists to keep full management of their files).
Moreover it is a community site : submited releases are validated and rated initially by members (users can apply as members at account creation time), allowing an independant and effective day to day management.
Finally it is a social site, as cover artists (singers, arrangers, pro composers) can submit covers to orignal composers (these will be validated by composer first, then by a community member, and added to the existing release if accepted). It will then allow reaching best indie music quality by enhancing initial composers music using other artists skills.
Moreover purchased releases are in progess ones (additional and/or updated songs will be available for free for previous customers), being then more valued."
