Zing, a music creation app with social media elements and the blockchain technology has begun its pre-registration process, inviting music composers, song writers and artistes from the Chinese music scene. Scheduled to launch its beta version in August 2018, Zing has gathered interest from artistes, music composers, song writers and music schools
With Chinese music producer, Lao Mao (Liu Yuan Long) as the app’s music advisor, more than 200 professionals in the industry have officially registered with the app. They include well-known celebrities such as Alex To, Cai Guo Qing, Li Yu Gang, Li Dan Yang, Roger Yang, Guan Zhe and others. Some of Asia’s most talented DJs such as Kaku, King Chain, DJ Yoyo and DJ Jade Rasif have come on board, in addition to more than 100 aspiring artists from various singing competitions in China.
In conjunction with the official launch of Zing app, the ‘Zing Team’ plans to stage a nation-wide music competition in more than 100 colleges and universities around China, including world-renowned music schools such as Central Conservatory of Music, China Conservatory of Music and Beijing Contemporary Music Academy.
This competition provides the opportunities for music students to work with and learn from established artists and music talents in the global Chinese music scene to create new music pieces. The competition is expected to end in November 2018 and the award ceremony will be held in the capital city, Beijing in December 2018.
Various television channels as well as popular Chinese music applications have also joined the ranks of Zing’s network of strategic partners to help further promote productions coming from Zing’s users into the Chinese music markets.
