Asia Goes Live
There is no infrastructure existing in Laos to be an artist/band and live of your art unless you have private funds or wealth. We like to build up a system that could grow into whole S.E.A to bring music from different cultures together and make it possible to make a living for these artists/bands and learn to be in a system where copyright exists and help generate money not only through live performances but also through material(video, cds streaming….etc) on all the networks and platforms existing throughout the world.
For that we would like to expose the different stages we need to go through to make this project happening:
- Create a label for independent music in Laos for S.E.A promoting cultural influences in any kind of music in a technical up to date environment.
- Produce Videos and music to international standards and promote on all networks and platforms available to generate revenue for bands, artists, etc…(mostly concerts that we will organise and shoot for promoional platforms to make it an honest performance with a good technical support)
- Start an agency promoting tours and exchange music from S.E.A through the whole world.(we will organise festivals and invite different Artists/bands in exchange for our artists/bands to play in their festivals, and different ways to exchange music…etc)
- For these projects we need technical support (music studio, video equipment…etc) We already have some of the structure (small studio and some cameras) but need to expand it to get to an international standard. This investment is estimated at 15000 usd (details of investment can be provided)
- To set up the infrastructure for the promotion/agency team we need to find a place to set up the studio, the video platform and office we will need about 15000 usd to start. ( rent, video shooting, room and food for the performers…etc while working on project) we will start with 3 projects to fund and hopefully come to 10 artist /band at the end of one year of opening.
- We will use the copyright from our own produced products(live videos, concert promos, music production….etc) that we will collect from europe(sabam, sacem) to finance the structure after first investment which would be generated 2 times a year according to the collecting organisation and we will not collect intellectual rights on the material which will remain the property of the song writers/composers.
