bt blockchain album

Since the earliest days of blockchain hype in the music industry, electronic music artists have often been the first to experiment with the technology: particularly those that are most tech-savvy and who control their rights.

There are two new examples this week. First, trance legend BT is releasing what’s being described as “the world’s first programmatic album… designed from the ground up for the blockchain”.

It’s called ‘Metaversal‘ and is being released as an NFT. The album plays differently if you listen to it in the day, at night or during a full moon, and there’s a cryptographic treasure hunt built in for fans. It follows BT’s ‘Genesis.Json‘ project in May, which was also sold as an NFT (for the ether equivalent of $217.2k).

The ‘Metaversal’ auction kicks off tomorrow (29 September). In separate news, veteran DJ Paul Oakenfold’s Starship Universe project is releasing thousands of NFTs with blockchain firm Cardano, including an album.

“Every aspect of the event, from the cover art and sleeve notes to the tracks and remixes will be put on the blockchain,” reported Crypto News.
