Here at Symphonic, we’re excited to announce our new partnership with Bonsai, a platform that helps recording artists engage and monetize superfans in the simplest way possible – recording an audio file directly on your phone. Here’s everything you need to know…
Symphonic Partners with Bonsai
Launched in 2022, Bonsai helps recording artists engage and monetize their superfans in new ways. Fans submit questions, and artists record answers to their favorite questions, creating audiograms that fans can share, collect, and own.
Since launch, a cohort of thirty emerging and rising artists have been granted access to leverage Bonsai, including Def Jam’s Amir Obè, Australian-bred, The Faim, former Now United member, Diara Sylla, Fly By Midnight, and The Holdup.
“Bonsai has created a refreshingly simple and extraordinarily useful platform that connects artists with superfans and monetizes a personal, feel-good exchange, in the form of a simple voice memo recording,” said Nick Gordon, Chief Partnership Officer at Symphonic. “We’ve known their team through many huge successes in the past and are proud to introduce our clients to the potential of Bonsai.”
What does this mean for you?
This collaboration will enable Symphonic artists to unlock early access to Bonsai’s marquee product, audiograms – audio recording responses to fan prompts and questions that get paired with visual generative art to form 1-of-1 collectibles. Artists’ top fans prompt, play, share, and own these audiograms, which the Bonsai team likens to fan-owned digital merch that can be consumed by everyone.
How does it work?
Fans pay the artist’s support price to submit a question or prompt such as, “what inspired you to write this verse?”, or, “how is your upcoming album going to be different from prior projects?”. Once the artist records a response, fans receive an audiogram that, if they choose, can be minted as an NFT, unlocking both authenticated ownership of that content, as well as potential for future income for both fans and artists, in the form of royalties.
