For the next few weeks any newcomer here may wonder whether this website is alive or not. Well it IS alive indeed. We are still working hard behind the scene to launch the final "version 1". We will then start a real communication towards artists & labels to extend the catalogue, at last.
How musicalias.com v1 will improve the current v0.8gamma:
-smoother process and clearer options for downloadable contents
-(partial) design revamp!
Target date: end of March maximum
The website's v1 was launched earlier this month. Now we're finally done with the last improvements and bug fixes. Time to work on the catalogue and promotion...
"What is this all about anyway?!"
At last, at last... A presentation of the project is now available. It can be downloaded and freely communicated to anyone interested.
Our discussions with professionals show that the concept must be pushed even forward so that Musicalias can be considered as "the artist's / label's own webshop".
The website presentation was modified accordingly. We expect the first concrete examples to be launched in September.
In the meantime of course the shop remains open.
A few more functionalities must be implemented, according to the feedback we had so far. As of today we cannot give any launch date for those evolutions and the extended catalogue.
We are not giving up in any way. musicalias.com remains open and fully functional. Artists and labels: if you would like such a website as our own webshop, if you agree with our take on the evolution of the music business, do not hesitate to drop us a line.
We regretfully have to close our service (starting with the payment gateway at this point). As we did not convince enough labels and distributors to participate to this first version, we can neither afford more technical spendings, nor look for external funding.
However we still trust this concept will develop, probably in slightly different ways and/or with more resources.
