Introducing Sound Protocol

2/500
September 20th, 2022
When we built Sound, the vision and mission was to create a world where any artist has complete creative control of their art and career without compromising the ability to own the relationship with their audience. In order to do right by artists and their communities, we had to make careful product decisions that allowed us to test our hypotheses about the future of music in a way that would allow us to generate real insights without sacrificing the trust of musicians, listeners, and collectors. We’ve learned a massive amount in a relatively short period of time.

Unlocking Daniel Allan, The Glass House EP

12/500
August 29th, 2022
It’s a perfect January day in Malibu, California. The salty taste of sea breeze floats through the air, the sound of waves crash below the coastline, and sunlight dances off the glass panes of a cliffside Airbnb. Daniel Allan and friends—Reo Cragun, DLG, Max and Benji (of slenderbodies), and Deegan—bask in the moment, swapping long hours on Twitter Spaces and Discord for guitar riffs, freestyle raps, and glasses of champagne. “I literally forgot about the internet,” says 25-year-old artist/producer Daniel Allan. “I got lost in making music.”

Digital Pressings - A Richer Metadata Standard for Music NFTs

1/500
August 30th, 2022
We recently announced our intention to develop the first new chart accredited music format since 2015 - the Serenade Digital Pressing. Designed to cater for a super-fan’s appetite for scarcity, exclusive content and community recognition, Digital Pressings are recognised by the UK and Australian chart bodies. We launched this innovative new format on August 26 with Grammy award winning global rock icons Muse for their brand new album Will Of The People. The format proved extremely popular with Muse fans and Serenade users alike, selling out within the first 25 minutes of sale.

Curation at Catalog

25/500
August 1st, 2022
Curation is subjective, as it should be. An art world dictated by an 'objective' good-bad binary isn't a world we believe in. What's needed is space for more voices to shine.
