    Open-source music… 

    Music industry is broken and the current model doesn’t seem to work anymore thats why different initiatives come to take the music business to the next level. One of these initiative is Severed Fifth Open band….below you can check their system and here you can read an interesting article.

    Open Band Three Tier system

    Severed Fifth is a music project with three core principles, which I have labeled as the Open Band Three Tier system:

    1. We give the music away freely: Like open source, this encourages redistribution and awareness, and empowers fans to harness the content, share it with friends, and ultimately bring more listeners to the band (in the same way open source has exploded in popularity due to the free availability of content for users to test and assess if it works for them).
    2. We build community: I have taken my experience in community management to build a community around Severed Fifth. This helps fans feel part of a project they can contribute to. We have done this in the form of the Severed Fifth Street Team.
  • We socialize Severed Fifth Fair Pay: We encourage people to pay what is fair and reasonable to them to help support the band. This is powered by PayPal and anyone with a piece of plastic in their wallet can contribute. Thanks to the free availability of content and the community feel, people gain a closer connection to the band. In turn, they are more likely to contribute. We have already seen many financial contributions from fans.
