Quick summary: An interview with Rime, 5,000 songs written, 10 million dollars raised, and Bowie on the Blockchain.
Song a Day Hits 5,000 – “Song A Day is different from other NFT projects. It did not grow directly out of the blockchain. I had written 2000 songs before Ethereum was even invented. I wrote another 1500 before I learned about digital scarcity. But from the moment I saw CryptoPunks, I knew that Song A Day was a perfect fit. Song A Day is many things. It’s about *time.* I measure the days by songs. Song A Day is a journal. It is quite literally a record of my creative life. Song A Day can be a burden, a joy, a challenge, a bore – all at the same time. Above all, Song A Day is an invitation to make stuff. Sometimes it’s good stuff, sometimes it’s bad stuff, but the making is the most important part.”
David Bowie NFTs to Benefit Humanitarian Act with OpenSea – “The estate’s 100% of the sale proceeds will be donated to CARE, a non-profit for which Bowie’s widow Iman serves as a Global Advocate.”
Introducing Coop Records – “Growing up I always had one goal. Make a living by supporting great music. Today – I’m proud to announce Coop Records Fund I – a $10M early-stage fund investing in the next generation of music. Here’s what you need to know.”
