PRLog - Oct. 14, 2012 - NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Celebrating his October 13th birthday, Roy Futureman Wooten, introduced his vision during his Black Mozart Ensemble ‘s performance at Chattanooga, TN “River Rocks Festival” (streamed live over the internet).  The first in a series of Futureman’s “Black Mozart” soundtrack albums, films, videos & accompanying merchandise are being delivered utilizing the new Distrify player. In partnership with Virgin Islander,  Gigi de Lugo, CEO of Tropic Heat Studios, Inc., (see http://www.TropicHeatStudios.com )an award winning music publisher & feature film producer, and among Distrify's beta testers, Futureman has been meticulously charting this course.  

“ We are determined to economically empower fans beginning with "Black Mozart" and continuing with other works created by Futureman, now managed under the distribution category we refer to as “fan royalty” said de Lugo. “Last year , three beta platforms were tested in search of one that would deliver quality HD streaming VOD rentals & downloads that also integrated a user-friendly mechanism to offer affiliate revenue sharing.  Distrify, based in Scotland, proved to be exactly what we had hoped for .”  Like many Independent (Indie) artists, Futureman relies on the rich collaborative contributions of everyone involved, now taking that one step further to include the fans in a revenue share of sales paid directly to fans.

“We will be creating instructional videos, video conferencing, email updates & tools that give me direct contact with everyone,” explained Futureman. “I see this as a revolutionary opportunity for an Artist to say “thank you”  to each fan who supports our work. “Bringing it to the people”, empowering individuals, communities, and potentially affecting a global economic shift through the power of social media and the Art Economy, is something I have always believed possible. This is our experiment in bringing that vision to life”

A simple website, Black Mozart Ensemble,(see http://blackmozartensemble.com ) has been launched that Futureman and de Lugo are managing personally and business consultant Umar Bey will be overseeing. This would not be a truly Indie experiment if the entire process could not be started with little to no financial investment, though that also means they have faced some challenges during the learning curve. “Roy has been out on tour with Jeff Coffin, so I sent him the new website design via his cell phone to approve. We both laughed when he got a 404 error message and wasn't able to access the website. I spent hours trying to figure out how to resolve that in time for his announcement at the River Rocks festival, and thankfully he just calmly rolled with it and said, “it’s all a process. Just the fact that we got it launched is a triumph! ”,  explained de Lugo.

As with the content, the delivery itself is a customized creation based on an artist’s vision and a dedicated team determined to bring it to life. Futureman is well known as a 5-Time Grammy winner with Bela’ Fleck & The Flecktones, and as an inventor of both the Drumitar and the Royel piano. Bringing evolutionary visions to life earned him the name, “Futureman”.  What better way to celebrate his birthday than from a concert stage plugged into the global internet audience as he & The Black Mozart Ensemble invites all of us to a glimpse into the future that is now.
