Musetic.com: An Online Artist Community
Something creative is brewing on the world wide web, and we think it’s high time Indy’s artists knew about it. The story begins with Dave Connis, a musician, writer, and all around lovable guy who was thirsting for a better way to share, and receive feedback on his work. Through this desire, Musetic.com was born.
So what exactly is Musetic? Connis describes his brainchild as “a Reddit alternative built by creators for creators,” an online platform where creative content is curated and promoted. Through Musetic, artists of all mediums can submit their work, and receive feedback from other interested users who are referred to as “Musers”. “As Musetic gains traction we want to continually foster an online community where artists across mediums can open up and receive solid feedback,” Connis explained, “We want to help artists by providing a new way to broaden their audiences as Musetic promotes their work.”
The inception of Musetic stemmed from Connis’s growing frustration with all the hoops and hurdles of sharing sites like Reddit, and its news-making discussion last October preventing users from sharing self-made content. Through his frustration he began to realize that there was a huge desire amongst artists for a high quality, sharing platform. With this idea in mind, and in what we now know as the collaborative spirit of Musetic, he approached web developer Joshua Chandler with his idea. “At that point, there wasn’t a solid place for a solid online arts community,” he said, “There wasn’t a place where all forms of art could go viral.” Together, Connis and Chandler got to work and launched Musetic in beta near the end of 2014.
Since Musetic’s launch it has rapidly gained popularity, and is now utilized by creators worldwide. As the work of Connis and Chandler grows, we would like to invite you into the Musetic experience. Join in and become a part of this newly established online creative community. Share your creations and receive quality feedback from other artists as Musetic promotes your work.
Connis wants you to know that Musetic has been made with you, the creator, in mind. “We want Musetic to become a home for the creator,” he said, “We want it to be a place where people can feel welcomed, inspired, challenged, and encouraged.”
