November 3, 2011 at 5:14 AM (PT)
THE ECHO NEST and EMI MUSIC will launch a new initiative to put thousands of legendary songs and other music-related content such as video, photos and artwork in the hands of more than 10,000 application developers around the world. This collaboration represents the most extensive collection of licensed music and other assets to ever be made available in this way, and gives developers a one-stop destination to create innovative digital products for EMI's artists.
This partnership with THE ECHO NEST is part of EMI MUSIC's OpenEMI initiative, focused on digital innovation and improving and streamlining the music licensing process for new digital applications in a way that is flexible and adaptive for developers.
EMI GROUP EVP/Strategy and Insight JIM BRADY said, "We're very excited about the potential of working together with THE ECHO NEST and their network to develop great applications for our artists. We’ve looked at how best we can improve the process of creating new music applications and the OpenEMI sandbox we have built together as a result is a fantastic resource for tapping the passion and innovation of the best developers in the world."
