Revolution Calling: An Asheville collaboration makes an early pitch for NFTs in vinyl album releases
While NFTs have made the quickest splash in the visual arts, they stand to make far broader impacts with the public when it comes to music.
Much like we’re seeing in the visual arts, NFTs are empowering musical artists to customize and package content for fans with money to spend. It’s also easy to see how NFTs could soon disrupt the concert ticketing industry.
One new Asheville collaboration, between a software developer and Citizen Vinyl, is embedding NFTs into vinyl records.
“You don’t have to be an expert in cryptocurrency in order to do this. Many of our artists and clients are NFT curious themselves and they’re trying to figure out their relationship and what role, if any, NFTs have in their creative works.”—Gar Ragland, founder of Citizen Vinyl.
