Breathe Music

Breathe Music enables the missing links to be made – unlocking revenue and making sure creators get paid.

Its current minimum viable product is an AI which takes a recording of music and matches a live song or a cover version of a song to the original. Unlike current solutions, it is highly agile. Breathe Music focuses on the work (song) rather than the recording. It identifies the essence of the song; however it is manifested. In addition, it can now identify songs when there is no actual recording available.

The Breathe Music solution is for music rights owners, the music industry’s collective management organisations, as well as venues and digital service providers. It ensures music is identified and provides evidence it was played.
