Hi everyone. I’ve recently joined Nouns DAO by way of Noun 375. I’ve been building in the NFT space since 2018 and have built various projects. One project that my partner and I built is called Audioglyphs, a collection of generative music NFTs that synthesize a unique, infinite stream of music directly in your browser at lossless quality. We want to repurpose this technology for Nouns with Sounds.
What are Nouns with Sounds?
Daily auctions to proliferate CC0, on-chain, generative music using an open audio format we created that allows arbitrarily high quality and length with file sizes small enough to be put on chain for a small fraction of an ETH in gas. Noun art will interact with generative audio (head bobs, movement, etc.).
We intend to build this into a platform that can host independent and prominent artists. For example a week of auctions could contain a base patch from a well known artist and others could be generated from patches built by an independent artist in the web3 community.
25% of proceeds go Nouns DAO
25% of proceeds + every 10th Noun with Sound goes to Nouns with Sounds founders
50% of proceeds goes to Nouns with Sounds DAO to be governed by Nouns with Sounds holders
Nouns with Sounds DAO
The goal of the DAO is to make generative music have an impact on society similar in size to the development of recorded music and to create a new business/distribution model for music that pays artists while sharing culture with everyone.
Existing Audioglyph Community
We intend to delegate Nouns with Sounds to the existing Audioglyph community to participate in NwS DAO voting (e.g. SharkDAO)
Small Grant Ask
Reimbursement for smart contract deployment and adding initial sample data/music configuration to chain not to exceed 3 ETH.
