Los Angeles, CA (September 26, 2016)—ProMusicDB.org, a new online platform allowing producers, engineers, songwriters and musicians to archive their credits, identity, metadata and more, will open its online enrollment Wednesday, September 28.
Through ProMusicDB.org’s Digital Musician Companion tool, members input their basic information once, then can begin adding their credits and data to their personal archive. With a ProMusicDB.org URL, members can save their name and will be assigned a Unique Global Identifier to protect and validate their identity. In addition, ProMusicDB.org is offering personal data curation from websites, which it says will enable artists to clean up incorrect data about themselves in open source and proprietary databases.
ProMusicDB.org’s aim is that commercial interests of the music industry will be able to correctly identify and locate music professionals, helping the industry become more transparent and benefitting the economy of musicians and their professional organizations. In addition, academic and government interests (Library of Congress, universities, etc.) can enhance their catalogs with authenticated creator, rights and performer information, or contribute their stored data to an authentic metadata ecosystem.
ProMusicDB.org is a project of the Pasadena Arts Council’s EMERGE Program and is a founding member of the BerkleeICE Open Music Initiative. Endorsers include the Professional Musicians Local 47 of the American Federation of Musicians, SAG-AFTRA Singers, the Music Library Association, the Entertainment ID Registry Association, and the Wrecking Crew.
