ADSactly Music Initiative #22

Welcome back to our music edition of the Adsactly blog, the last two days we have gotten completely lost in all the original music content that is posted on the Steem Blockchain. The hardest part is having to make a decision on which track to choose, but we try opt for picking something new most of the time. The entire philosophy behind this initiative is to help get some exposure to original content on the chain, even though it's not a lot, every little bit counts.

"Songs really are like a form of time travel because they really have moved forward in a bubble. Everyone who's connected with it, the studio's gone, the musicians are gone, and the only thing that's left is this recording which was only about a three-minute period maybe 70 years ago." - Tom Waits

We would also like to again ask anyone to please drop some links of your own music or anyone else in the comments below, if you come across a great tune, be cool and share, or come post it in our ADSactly discord server in the music_initiative channel. Our aim with this initiative is to help support music orientated content from across the Steem blockchain, focusing on original content.

We got together and decided we wanted to do something in the music space, as there are so many budding, talented musicians on the Steemit platform. We noticed that, although there were a lot of people posting, it felt like some of the contributors could use a little helping hand. I mean, who wouldn't want a little helping hand, right?
So where could WE add value? We could use our own in-house production people to help develop music for fellow Steemians looking for that little extra audio assistance.

We'll be running an initiative where Steemians can post their links below, and if the criteria are met (please read the criteria), we'll dig in with them and help mix their track, or add some instruments that they feel are missing from their song, or some little production techniques. If there isn't actually a post that our producer can work with, we might even just decide to give one of the entrants a bit of upvote love.

As time goes by and we put together enough collaborated content, we will then upload this content to digital stores (iTunes, Spotify, Deezer, etc.) and release a compilation album.

The other avenue where we would like to add value is to sync the music to commercials to try and develop some additional passive income for the artists.
Where will this go?
....Only time will tell!
