Welcome to the home of the Priceless Music Project.
In today’s digital music landscape, buying music has become a paradox– we are asked to pay for a product which we can readily acquire for free.
The cat is out of the bag. Music is free. Despite what record labels, the federal government or Metallica has to say about it, your favorite album is available for free somewhere on the internet and all you have to do is find it and hit download. You will not be arrested. The police will not come to your house. But, if you’re like most people you might feel a little melancholy about the whole situation? Not because you’re worried James Hetfield might go hungry but because you know that the artist whose music you love, won’t be seeing any compensation from your free download. Until now, the only alternative for someone in this situation would be to break down and buy the music…
A Revolutionary New System
We are raising funding for the development and implementation of an e-commerce platform that will enable independent record labels and bands to sell their music on a “pay-what-you-want” basis. Your donations go towards the nuts and bolts of digital platform development that will require constant updates, reworking and tweaking of the look, traits, and functionality of the platform based on user feedback.
Funding The First Albums
The funds we raise through this campaign will allow us to release the first five albums that will be available on the beta version of the Priceless Music Project platform– the first being the new album by indie-mariachi-folk outfit Y LA BAMBA. Their new album, Court The Storm, comes out Feb 28th 2012. As the funding of the project progresses we will be announcing the other records that will be released in 2012.
