$50,000 is a drop in the ocean for many digital music services when setting up shop, but for US startup FMGEM, it’s the target for a campaign to crowdfund a service that will “revolutionise music on the web”. They’re clearly optimists. The service sounds interesting though: a web app that pulls in music videos and audio from YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo and DailyMotion as well as data from Discogs to help people stream music and create and share playlists. Currently in beta with 2,000 users, it wants the $50,000 to develop iOS and Android mobile apps, while also marketing the parent service. But the Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign will also serve to swell FMGEM’s beta test further, since anyone donating $10 or more will get full access to the beta site within 24 hours of chipping in. There’s a way to go, though: the campaign launched on Tuesday and has so far pulled in $465 in pledges.
