The company has already attracted some of the top artists, music executives and technology veterans, thanks to its disruptive technology offering that enables anyone to create incredible music quickly, challenging slower-paced lower-quality music industry and creator economy incumbents. More than $3.8 million has been invested in the company’s over-subscribed seed round by a wide range of investors, including leaders from businesses such as Microsoft, The Walt Disney Company, Universal Music Group, Accenture, Beatport and Squeak E Clean Studios.
Demand for unique studio-quality music is higher than ever before, with millions of creators looking for high-quality, unique tracks to enhance production projects or power new artist cuts, to tight timelines and budgets. Soundful democratizes music production and rapidly accelerates creative speed, by giving users access to a tool leveraging music theory-trained algorithms and one of the biggest original sound libraries ever assembled to augment the creative process and bring out each individual’s highest artistic expression.
Soundful Founder and CEO Diaa El All commented, “Technology has been a key part in the creative process for the world’s leading artists for many years, enhancing the individual genius of the greatest writers, producers and artists. While we’ve seen substantial disruption in music consumption over the past fifteen years, music creation has remained fundamentally unchanged. Soundful shifts that paradigm by allowing creators unprecedented access and control of the fundamental building blocks of music creation, enabling unparalleled creativity at previously impossible speed and quality. Soundful empowers this and the next generation of artists and creators of all types, to find new pathways forward, fight writer’s block, and enable studio-quality music creation, regardless of experience and expertise.”
The Soundful platform assists professional creators by generating unique tracks and stems they can use as-is or enhance with their individual artistry. Social media influencers can download previously created tracks or automatically generate their own royalty-free music to perfectly fit their aesthetic without knowing how to produce music or navigate the complex music licensing landscape. Aspiring creators with minimal experience can now sound like a professional by using Soundful to quickly generate ideas or hooks and beds to build on with their own creativity and style.
