Virtual-reality music startup MelodyVR has added another two labels to its roster of licensing partners: independents Beggars Group and Domino. The deals were announced this morning by MelodyVR’s parent company EVR Holdings, which is a public company in the UK.
MelodyVR has also renewed its licensing deal with Aresa, a company representing catalogues from music companies including Chrysalis, BMG and Cherry Lane.
“These music licensing agreements will further enhance our licencing portfolio and strengthen our capabilities for both content creation and distribution on a global basis,” said CEO Anthony Matchett.
The news comes shortly after MelodyVR launched its smartphone app, making its catalogue of live performances and other VR content available to people without the need for a VR headset. The company is also working on its own ‘Viewer’ hardware, which will work with smartphones and is due to launch later this year.
