Rebuilding the music industry
on the blockchain

Ujo is a new shared infrastructure for the creative industries that allows creators and their customers to achieve greater levels of transparency, fairness and profitability.

We have just released a live prototype which uses Imogen Heap’s new song
Tiny Human as a test case.

About the prototype


Grammy and Ivor Novello award-winning artist Imogen Heap has agreed to let us loose on her new song Tiny Human so that we can demonstrate how our shared goal of a more transparent music industry can be achieved using the blockchain.

Our prototype is a complete, self-contained song ecosystem. You can explore the Tiny Human network, examine the policies associated with the track, see how payments are automatically distributed to the different contributors to the song and – if you have the cryptocurrency Ether – buy a download of the song and have your transaction recorded permanently on the blockchain.

Launch Prototype

In our next release we will be implementing credit card payments so that anybody can experience the full functionality of the prototype without acquiring Ether. In the meantime, you can learn how to get Ether here.

The prototype works best in the Chrome browser and desktop only. Click here to download and install Chrome.


How it
works

Blockchain

Creators publish ownership information and use policies on the blockchain – a permanent and transparent string of transactions viewable and stored by everybody on the network.

Smart Contracts

Anybody can use the registered content provided that they meet the terms of the policy. The right to do so is transferred automatically through a smart contract.

Instant Payment

Payments are delivered to individual stakeholders instantly and automatically using digital currency, eliminating the need for intermediaries.

Open Source

Ujo’s open platform provides a shared infrastructure upon which infinite potential services, applications and business models can be built.
