What will become?
Vinyls, CDs, cassettes, all over the world there is a huge heritage of unreleased record productions that are currently sitting on artists' shelves, only to be forgotten as time goes by. All music that is in danger of disappearing forever, leaving no trace.
That's why we have created Save the Music, a project to protect unpublished music heritage. It is a comprehensive service, designed both for active artists and for all those who in the past have self-produced singles, EPs or entire albums of original music of national and international interest.
Collect unpublished productions
Document the artist's profile and essential biographical notes
Optimize the sound performance with new dedicated masterings
Publish the productions of artists who, before the advent of digital music, had invested energy and money in self-producing their work, result of passion and commitment
Carry out the procedures for new deposits with the relevant collecting society or reformulate the deposits of the tracks, regularising author positions if not updated
Distribute in all the most important online shops (approx. 150 to date) worldwide
Account for any revenue streams from listening, streaming, downloading, leaving all the royalties to the rights holders
Carry out communication activities for the Save the Music project and circulation of artistic heritage
We are convinced that these works can find their place and be proposed to the general public, which today listens to countless proposals published daily on all digital stores.
