Triberr is a radically new concept that many of you may not know about. Just like with our buddy, top Jazz drummer Demetrice Everett, our main job as Avante-garde art!sts at !kohaus Music Group is to “Educate”, “Inform” and “Problem Solve”. When we say working at Triberr, we don’t mean that we work for them, no. We work at it. Triberr is a profound web application designed to build your community, connect with like minded individuals, generate engagement and drive traffic to your content. This is how perhaps many of you got here.
Why Are Musicians Here At Triberr?
Well you see just like Tim Berners-Lee invention of the Web that turns 21 this year. We Avante-garde creative types have always wanted to use the web to do different things. Specifically what we !kohaus artists (musicians, writers, dancers and the like) have striven to change was to make the musician sociable. It’s not enough to just take out the big studios, record companies and A&R guys. We believe you should replace that with opening up direct lines of communication with the fans and followers, which after all is what these guys were actually doing for the musician in the pre-twitter and facebook days.
So how do we go about putting this project into practical application? Being proactive, our aim is twofold, #1 to get the musician Demetrice Everett to be a sociable artist and actually talk to his fans and followers via twitter etc., rather than at them (buy this, buy that). Mainly for experimental purposes we used Triberr with his twitter link in the title, so that retweets will go across his mentions. #2 We invested the compensation we received for the making of the video into Empireavenue virtual (e) eaves, sending people on missions to retweet out the 1st article to a networked audience.
Who Can We Blame…
for this influx of new Avante-garde artists, musicians and truly creative types that are socializing directly with people along with the traditional bloggers, writers and disseminators of technical geekiness. Well I will not mention any names here like Saul Fleischman creator of the app RiteTag whom I befriended and for months talked about getting me social on Triberr as soon as he could convince his friend Christina Majaski a Tribe Chief in Triberr to include me. That alone was an ordeal as she was convinced that I had a screw or two loose, so I had to make her realize that even Salvador Dali had a few peculiarities (and actually Christina I have 47 screws loose, 3 more than Salvador Dali and 10 more than Picasso).
End Of Story
So there you have it and it remains to be seen of our !kohaus grand experiment of getting creatives to be truly sociable and using social media tools, to be in direct contact with the public. In terms of our latest music project let loose on the Social Realm to resurrect modern Jazz music as Warner Wolf would say, “Let’s Go To The Videotape!!!”
