Authentic Artists Accepted Into The Sandbox's Game Maker Fund to Build Generative AI Music-Driven WarpSound Experience01 December 2022 - Press release
The Game Maker Fund is an initiative that supports game designers in The Sandbox’s metaverse by funding creators’ projects and publishing their games
Authentic Artists has been selected as a recipient of The Sandbox’s Game Maker Fund, an exciting development as they continue to create the sound of the metaverse under their WarpSound brand. The funding will be used to build a new music experience powered by Authentic’s industry-leading generative AI music platform.
Expansion to The Sandbox opens up a new world of music play and creativity opportunities for WarpSound’s interactive music experiences. It will also become the home venue for WarpSound’s virtual artists Nayomi, Gnar Heart, DJ Dragoon and GLiTCH who have performed on Twitch, Decentraland, Crypovoxels, Stageverse, as well as IRL events at Tribeca Film Festival and NFT.NYC.
“The Sandbox Game Makers Fund's goal is to support Creators to work in a creative platform that inspires them, and allow them to truly own their creations while fueling innovative experiences in the open Metaverse,” says The Sandbox COO & Co-Founder Sébastien Borget. “Music is integral to gaming, and WarpSound’s generative AI music capabilities will level up what’s possible for music in The Sandbox.”
"This is a meaningful win for us, with less than 100 brands and builders receiving this grant,” says Authentic Artists CEO Chris McGarry. “The Game Maker Fund team believes in our vision of awakening a deeper connection with music. Together, we’re setting the foundation for a future filled with new musical adventures made possible by generative AI tools.”
Past recipients of the Game Maker Fund include Snoop Dogg, deadmau5, Atari, Steve Aoki, and more. “The Sandbox is one of the most significant and innovative players in the open metaverse web3 space. This is incredible strategic validation for our team,” adds McGarry.
