Today, more and more music is kept away from its would-be fans, cloistered behind insurmountable pay walls and exclusivity deals. Even though many music streaming services boast, “all the music you can eat for the cost of two coffees a month,” those of us who can't afford to give up our precious bimonthly coffees might be facing a world of deafening silence. But do not fear, for there remains an everlasting sonic sanctuary: Royalty Free Music.
Long after Taylor Swift absconds with her discography behind the walled gardens of Apple Music, Traylor Bift’s semi-professionally produced techno-country riffs shall remain squarely in the public domain—and are nearly indistinguishable from T-Swizzle’s (apparently one of Taylor’s many nicknames) at low volumes. Once Sufjan Stevens vows to release his next album exclusively via whispering it into the petals of that one orchid that blooms just once every seven years, we will still have Something Stevejams and his field recordings of bros playing Jason Mraz-inspired “originals” in the campus quad. In the coming drought, Royalty Free Music will be an everlasting spring.
Now that I have proven to you that Royalty Free Music is undoubtedly the future of music, perhaps you can already see where this is going. We must capitalize on our shared vision and build a product for this impending reality. We must become the ”Spotify” “of” “Royalty Free Music”. You may be asking yourself, “how viable is a business based on something that is intrinsically free?” Hold your horses! Now is not the time for questions, but the time for action. Anyway, monetization occurs naturally once a site gets Series-A Hacker News Death-Funded, so we don’t even have to worry about that.
Now I am more of a visionary/thought-leader than a programmer/person-who-works, so I'm afraid you will have to do most of the heavy lifting from here on out. Lucky for you, this is a real perpetual motion machine of an idea, so you mostly just have to strap your hands to your keyboard and ride it out.
