Crunch Digital to Provide Full Service Rights Solution for JamBandit Music App
Los Angeles, August 27, 2013: Recombinant Inc has chosen Crunch Digital to provide data management and royalty reporting services for its JamBandit interactive music applications. Crunch Digital’s data management and reporting services bridge digital rights owners with content licensees, including app developers, games, mobile providers and online digital music services.
JamBandit, a groundbreaking interactive music application, enables expert musical performance from all players, regardless of experience or musical training. JamBandit players can improvise from a wide variety of songs and instruments, then share their performances on Facebook, SoundCloud, or email.
“By putting the fan in the band, we’re delivering the ultimate music fantasy while driving more sales to the artists and songwriters who make that experience possible,” said Dave Park, CEO of Recombinant. “We are thrilled to be working with Crunch Digital, as they radically simplify the necessary workflow with our growing list of content partners.”
“JamBandit exemplifies the innovative kind of business opportunities appearing in the music marketplace,” said Keith Bernstein, founder of Crunch Digital. “One of the reasons we started Crunch Digital is to facilitate these specialized music licenses and make dataflow and reporting more efficient between content owners and content users.”
JamBandit is developed by Recombinant Inc, a technology company specializing in music analysis and algorithmic composition. Recombinant systems enable interactive touchscreen and motion sensitive environments in which the player experiences music as a virtual talent. These technologies are derived from UC Santa Cruz Professor Emeritus David Cope’s pioneering studies of algorithmic composition. Recombinant’s mission is to help artists sell more music by putting the fan in the band.
