HONG KONG, July 28, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The Blank Slate Initiative, launched by music lovers based in hong kong, aims to disrupt the current music ecosystem with Web3 experimentation, merging songs with visualizers into NFT products that distribute streaming royalties. This is a collective project of ARCtistry Company Limited (https://arctistry.com/blank-slate).
Their Phase One EP, THE EDGE OF DAWN, consists of three groups of singer-songwriters, producers, composers, lyricists and visual artists, based in hong kong, Taiwan, Malaysiaand Continent China. Faced with a blank slate, musicians were asked to write a song in their favorite genre on the themes of the beginning, middle and end. The visual artists then turned the song into a full visualizer.
Born from music, produced with NFT, and rewarded with royalties. THE EDGE OF DAWN consists of three tracks, each track has three copies, and in total nine NFTs. By owning the NFT product, owners will receive 5% of all future streaming royalties. A premium NFT edition that includes all three songs, a total of 15% streaming royalties, and a behind-the-scenes podcast about the process and meaning of the work. Combining NFT with traditional streaming platforms, THE BLANK SLATE INITIATIVE hopes to bring more collaboration and innovation within the music industry.
