Tunedly Showcases the Need for Online Recording Studios

The Coronavirus has hit home hard, negatively affecting businesses in all industries. Among the hardest hit are retail businesses, food establishments and the travel, tourism and entertainment industries. Social distancing is the new catchphrase. While important and necessary, for businesses, it means turning clients away for the benefit of public health.

Recording studios are no exception to this new norm. Stuffing 10 or more musicians into a confined space in close proximity to each other is the exact opposite of social distancing. As a result, recording studios, an industry that has already experienced a constant decline over the past 10 years, are on the brink of extinction.

SoundStorming Debuts New Social Music App

9 out of 10 artists are left forever undiscovered. Chances are, the next potential hit by an undiscovered artist is stashed away in a garbled voice memo right now.

A new social music app, SoundStorming, is going to change how artists are discovered by making music’s process of creation social. Today’s musicians are continuously recording song ideas on their phones, this means that artists have hundreds of potential great songs or sounds that are never shared or further developed.

Translated globally, this means millions of beats, rhythms, melodies, remixes, and collaborations never see the light of day — and millions of wasted opportunities for fans and other creators to discover new sounds, new artists, and collaborations.
