FlowState: Collaborative Audio Production

Project Title: FlowState

Problem Statement: What is the problem you will solve?

Sharing audio projects and samples with collaborators is a painstaking manual process, much maligned within the industry. Companies like “Splice” offer high quality audio, but a “walled-garden” approach defeats a truly collaborative experience.

Goals: What are you aiming to accomplish?

Multiple users may participate in a collaborative audio production session with a real-time layer hosted on Akash, and a marketplace powered by decentralized persistent storage on Filebase.

Impact: What impact will this project have?

This project will enable a revolutionary global approach to audio production and a secondary marketplace for high quality audio samples, potentially creating new revenue streams for artists and curators.

Budget: How much funding will this require?

This project is a commercialization of previously unreleased methods for collaborative music production and has projected to require between $500k - $1m in additional resources to bring to market.

For the purposes of this Hackathon POC, we will need a few hundred $AKT.

Timeline: What is the timeline for accomplishing this task?

This project has been in active development since March 2020.
The POC of this configuration can be completed in the course of the current Filebase/Akash hackathon.
