Reimagining: music

MUSIC MAKERS are the connective tissue for the music industry. Mycelia’s 'Creative Passport' delivers a vision of the future which sees music makers connected through a verified and decentralised digital ecosystem promoting artist-led, fair and sustainable operating practices. Using emergent blockchain technology, 'The Creative Passport’ – which is unique to each music maker and which enables creators to link their work – contains personal information, IDs, acknowledgements, works and business partners and incorporates ‘smart contract’ elements, enabling quick and easy direct payments, simplifying and democratising meaningful commercial partnerships and creative collaborations.

Showcasing Imogen Heap's musical data-self as the Creative Passport example, this exhibition at Future Fest will provide an interactive platform to communicate the potential for adopting Creative Passports as a digital identity standard. In addition, it will highlight relevant innovations and partner technologies designed to benefit and advance the music industry. Exhibits include the ground-breaking Mi.Mu Gloves (the new frontier of wearable music digital interfaces), an immersive music platform with interactive visuals and data, VR experiences, virtual instruments, artist empowering apps and software, and Imogen’s portfolio of record releases.

Mycelia works with and for people who are interested in unlocking new potentials for a fair, sustainable and vibrant music industry. Mycelia looks to drive technology, ensuring that all involved in the creation and distribution of musical works are acknowledged and paid fully, and as transparently as possible. How can we help those who wish to collaborate and or do business with music creatives and their works? How can we ensure their experience is as easy as possible? Our projects include work with distributed ledgers, linked data, VR, Big Data, IP, identity and verification.
