How Music can Influence social Change

Music influences the Actions we take by changing our states of consciousness

Since the beginning of time, music has influenced our behaviours and actions by changing our states of consciousness.  Music is a universal language that can unite, build bridges, and inspire action in ways that no other form of communication can. 

Indigenous Communities have applied music and sounds for social change and healing for thousands of years. Our Tipping Point Indigenous Council serves to apply this powerful knowledge with respect and integrity. 

Developing social technologies that makes it possible to musically inspire regenerative actions for social change

Knowing the powerful role of music for influencing behaviour and action we have started to develop the social technologies that can empower people from around the world to co-create and share their Songs for Action.

Your donation through the Music4Change Influencer Circle helps to develop this important transformative technology to empower millions of people around the world to discover and share their musical Voice for Action!

Learn more about our social change technology

After many years of research, we have now started the development of our unique Tipping Point digital platform and app as THE NEXUS POINT* for our Tipping Point Music for Social Change Challenge. 

By helping to fund this initiative you are co-creating this influential nexus point with us.

Knowing that such a platform and app did not currently exist in our world, and needs to be based on the best technologies and scientific insights about social change, we asked Prof dr. Sabine Brunswicker and her brilliant team of the most amazing scientists and developers at Purdue University's Research Center for Open Digital Innovation to create this.

They enthusiastically agreed! Prof. Sabine Brunswicker and her interdisciplinary team of scientists, designers, artists, and platform engineers can build upon several years of scientific research and practical development experiences on how to design digital platforms for co-creative social change.

With support of the U.S. National Science Foundation, they have worked with thousands of challenge participants around the world to scientifically validate how digital technologies can give individuals, like artists, not only 'voices' but also 'hands' for social change

Together we are now designing the co-creative challenges, based on proven scientific methods for behavioral and trajectory change. 

* Nexus points are places where destiny and opportunity collide. They are strategic moments that speak to the core of history and humanity's evolutionary purpose. If you happen to be at the nexus of something, you are right in the middle of it, like the imaginal cells in a caterpillar are right in the middle of the transformation into a butterfly. We use music to enable change agents to come together into a consciously nexus point at this critical moment in time. (See TPS Council Member Elisabet Sahtouris' Butterfly Story for more detail). 

WHO THIS IS FOR

Our digital platform aims to connect three key actors to co-create a playlist of songs that call a global audience to take action for social change.

  • Artists
    (musicians, cultural creatives) who co-create songs throughout an iterative process.
  • Advisors
    (experts in “thrivability” focused not only on sustainability but also social and human capital to regenerate planetary, social, cognitive as well as spiritual resources) who advise artists in defining their call for action.
  • Listeners
    (you, me, and people around the world) who help artists to learn about the potential of their lyrics and sounds to motivate others to follow their call for action.

KEY FEATURES

This community platform offers artists a range of novel features to create songs that ignite action:

  • OUR SONGS: Access to the community’s co-created songs prior to the global release of the tipping point playlist (e.g. via Spotify)
  • MY STUDIO: A space to create and upload different versions of an artist’s song (its audio, its narrative) with features to implement the song’s call for actions (e.g. donations related to the song)
  • MY RESULTS: Access to feedback from advisors and listeners as well as access to song analytics (e.g. “danceability”, listener engagement)
  • MY SOCIAL NETWORK: Access to a discussion forum to engage in the dialogue with like-minded artists who want to thrive
  • MY LAB: Tools and tutorials to learn about digital music production, “thrivability,” and more

Mother Earth is Calling Us 
to Sing a New Song

“I have begun to listen to the song of songs in that silence just before dawn, just before the birds begin their beautiful opera, and I begin to feel how the world longs for a new human song, a song maybe we will walk one day, to change the shape of what a man might be, to find the living love in this fettered land.”

~ Saint Francis of Assisi, from Francesco, by Phillip Wells - The Fire Poet

Why Crowdfund?

This is a passion project inspired by our children and future generations. To take our many years of research and preparation to the next phase is a huge undertaking, and we simply can't afford to attempt it without the help of this crowdfund.

One of the things we're most excited about is building community around this project, and connecting with local volunteers around the world want to help build the #Music4Change Tipping Point movement.

Don't hesitate to get in touch if you think you can help in any way.

Your Impact by co-funding

#Music4Change is about a lot of things, but first and foremost it’s about driving social change through the connection between artists who are passionate about Mother Earth and their fans. We see this crowdfunding as a way to strengthen those bonds by letting musicians and music fans get behind the thing that matters most to all of us – our planet and our future.

Our crowdfund – and the platform we're building – is about bringing creators and fans together around a common cause. It is about the formation of a community that values inspiring music FOR conscious actions. To our knowledge, no current music platform allows this kind of direct engagement. We  want to enable music fans and artists to connect with each other and the music they love, through co-creative calls to action.  This will be the first time in history, where music for change, social artistry, behavioral science, storytelling, digital innovation, consciousness technologies, entrepreneurship, and indigenous wisdom are combined into one system: The Tipping Point System.

How will the funds be used?

  • Personnel - 55%: The majority of the funds will be used to secure the team.
  • Travel & Workshops - 20%: We're planning a kickoff team session where everyone who has worked remotely so far gets to meet the rest of the team.
  • Servers & Platform Fees - 10%: We require a number of subscription software services to enable the team to work as efficiently as possible.
  • Tax - 6%: Enough said.
  • Equipment & Comms - 4%
  • Marketing, Legal, Accounting - 3%
  • Co-working Space - 2%

Love the Vision and want to engage and support in other ways?

We welcome any other forms of support.

If you'd like to discuss other options, please let us know.

Tipping Point Council, singer, philospher, author, and founder of The Naked Voice Foundation

“Sound is the ground of consciousness. Singing from the heart reminds us what matters, why we are here, what we most long for. There is no form of expression more personal, more tied to our true identity, than our voice. Finding our authentic voice – personally and globally - is the catalyst driving humanity at this unprecedented time on Earth. The Tipping Point Music for Social Change is a response to this imperative call. It is a cutting-edge invitation to humanity to come together and liberate the untapped resources of sound within us, and to cocreate new lyrics, spoken and sung – wisdom songs, world songs, a symphony of sound, heralding the new story for our time. The Tipping Point Music for Social Change is a response to a call to and from the heart of humanity, to listen, and to remember three things:

  1.  singing is our birthright;
  2. there is no suffering too great for human song;
  3. now is the time to wake up to the responsibility that is our shared song.”
