I connected with a startup company of musicians on an app concept that helps musicians make money from their art and connect with their fans all over the world, from semi pro to professional. MyMVision is more or less “Linkedin for Musicians” – no memes, politics, crap, clutter and so on! – just musicians talking with their fans and other musicians. If you want to improve your signal to noise ratio in reaching your fans it’s what My Space promised to be and quite a bit more.
- Create your musician / band profile and showcase your talents to the world – upload a 60 second video of your work – this unique feature allows you to find musicians of specific genre and skill levels in ways that are currently unavailable
- Find other musicians using the geo-location facility – great if you want to find musicians of a certain quality level around the world
- Promote your band / gigs / merchandise
- Find venues and other agencies to help you spread your music and make money from it

I’d be interested in your views on the development. If you know of any other musicians that might be interested feel free to share this. It’s already gained the approval of a few pro musicians …
The origins of MyMVision
There are 200 million musicians on planet earth, of which 10 million have a fanbase but are not mainstream artists. At the lowest level, most serious musicians have up to 100 fans in their circle. Up till now some 95% of musicians are unrecognised and unrewarded for their efforts to write and perform music. The Internet of Artists are breaking new ground with a new platform for musicians that will allow them to collaborate, gain new markets for their music and finally turn their passion into profit. The Internet of Artists is a British start up company led by Riccardo Barbieri Torriani, an Italian entrepreneur, who started his career working in the square mile whilst playing music in his spare time. Like Sir James Dyson who became frustrated when his vacuum cleaner did not suck, Riccardo thought there must be a better way to connect and collaborate with musicians than My Space or Facebook, which is contaminated by the “noise” of cat photos, memes and pictures of other people’s breakfasts. This line of thought gave birth to MyMVision.
