Many times, we were bothered about how difficult it is to find information about the evolution and the portfolio of different bands and artists. For example, we were longing for a convenient and easy way to explicitly search for songs involving Dave Grohl: For one thing, of course, at his current position as singer and guitarist of the Foo Fighters – then again, as the drummer for Nirvana, Them Crooked Vultures and other bands, he played for in the past. You know what? We couldn’t find a website or tool to show and play all these songs, Dave Grohl was involved in. Bingo – we had found our market niche!
From there on, we followed the goal to do not less but to revolutionize the search for music. Hence, we founded musicube. Our tool improves search results from music streaming providers with the help of an AI. Thus, we make artists, bands and their music more visible.
Our common passion for music has helped us much so far. Also, our joint interest for computer science and data analyses makes our work together easier. Both of us, Agnes and David, studied music and computer science. Yet, we only got to know each other when we were working for our last employer, the Hamburg-based company PHONONET. There, we won plenty of valuable insights on music meta data and the music industry in general.
Building up your own company, however, is clearly something new and exciting for us. One of our main common goals is to develop and maintain a pleasant work environment for our team. We aspire to create an atmosphere where everyone feels comfortable and can evolve.
Another goal is to contribute to musicians’ situation for the better, as the consequences of COVID-19 hit many artists hard. As most concerts and festivals are cancelled this year, one of the most important sources of income have not been available for musicians since months. With our tool, we want to make music easier to discover and act as a channel for them to reach new recipients. Here, one of our latest achievements can help us: We could win Sony Music Germany, one of the three largest music corporations in Germany, as our cooperation partner.
