Today we start this blog with the desire to continue supporting all independent musicians who are already part of this network. It has been 18 months of hard work, creating playlists, developing the platform, contacting each of the web users and thousands of other musicians who have contributed to make Noise of Dreams what we know today.
Along the way, since we started the forgotten Less Records that some of you will remember, there have been many changes that have taken place, sometimes we have made mistakes and other times we have been right, but if the work has been constant is because we have always received positive feedback from all of you.
Our goal has always been to try to organize a free artist promotion system, based on spotify playlists curated by artists. As musicians, we are the first ones interested in appearing in all the possible playlists, but sometimes, the market mechanisms invite us to pay exaggerated amounts of money for the profits we get as musicians.
Noise of Dreams emerges as a collaborative project to share works of emerging and independent artists. The musical works promoted by Noise of Dreams have in common the commitment to artistic quality in relation to minimalism, taking as a reference the idea that “less is more”. You can find everything from classical music to avant-garde, ambient, new age, soundscapes, field recordings and experimental music.
Over the last two years, more than 500 musicians have registered on our website, sharing more than 500 playlists and 200 publications. Noise of Dreams has become a large community of professionals in the music world, so it is time to take a step forward and define our goals.
The funding of our digital platform has been made possible by the voluntary work and musicians contributions.
As a community, we have achieved great potential as music promoters, which leads us to rethink our goal. Since its inception, Noise of Dreams has been committed to raising awareness and contributing through fundraising, to the financing of programs for the inclusion of people with disabilities. That has been our discourse along with making Noise of Dreams known as a collaborative project.
After looking for the legal formula that would allow us to achieve our goal in the most transparent and effective way, we have come to the conclusion that the best thing for Noise of Dreams and its community is to officially become to helping non-profit associations.
In this way, what the artists do in favor of Noise of Dreams, is to make available to our organization and our community the playlists. In this way, we share some promotion channels that allow us to publicize your work as independent musicians and labels, while allowing us to promote work that contributes to the funding of other nonprofit associations, related to the inclusion of people with disabilities.
From Noise of Dreams, we offer the platform as a free support and promotion for artists and small independent record labels. We listen carefully to each of the proposals we present, and as music supervisors and playlist curators, we offer high quality content.
If you are an audiovisual producer, filmmaker, film school, record label, producer, composer, music manager, music distributor, music school or concert hall, you are invited to participate in our project.
At Noise of Dreams we believe that music is a universal art, a communication channel that connects people regardless of their physical or intellectual condition. We want people with functional diversity to find in Noise of Dreams a platform that helps them to give visibility to their demands as citizens. That is why we have established a partnership program with those non-profit organizations that contribute to the social inclusion of people with disabilities.
It is essential that a developed society of the 21st century knows how to live as an equal with any person, and that this society offers the human and material means so that people with disabilities have the same opportunities. As musicians, we can contribute with our speeches to form a society committed to equality, inclusion and diversity.
