Wondering what this site is for?

This site is a realization of the association Music Park which aims to promote musicians independent of copyright systems (SACEM, ADAMI, SPEDIDAM, etc) but also of the major streaming platforms (Spotify, Deezer, Jamendo, etc), with the primary objective of creating a physical network for the diffusion of music. In a broader way, the second objective is to promote, bring, and help to take in hand digital tools (which are part of the "free software world") as well as knowledge of the laws and functioning of copyright for a better autonomy and independence in order to emancipate musical artists. It is also important to note that the association and this site are not the emanation of a "startup" impulse with the slogan "a new world", a disruption towards more "sharing" and many other misleading slogans but the fruit of the path of a musician (founder of the project) who believes in ethics, solidarity and especially in taking the destiny of musical artists in hand by themselves.

 

As a simple visitor, can this site be of use to you?

You are not an artist, or even a music professional and you are not looking for music to be played in a public place without being subject to a copyright royalty, this site can allow you to discover and listen to artists who may not be on the virtual music distribution networks you may be used to. It is also possible that one day you may organize a concert (with your association for the promotion of joy of life) or need music for a video that you will broadcast publicly or any use of music in a context in which you do not master the rights and legislative obligations, in this case this site may provide you with the information you are looking for, and perhaps also works that you will be interested in using.
