Basspistol was founded in 2010 with the idealistic vision of enabling creative independence without compromising individual freedom with traditional, alienating and cumbersome contracts while still providing a framework for it’s participants.

Inspired by the Free Open-Source Software communities and labor syndicates, it’s current aim is to provide artists with:

  • πŸ›οΈ An institutional backing
  • πŸ’ͺ Negotiation-weight on the music-market
  • 🍬 Tools for digital-promotion circumventing the stigma of so-called β€œself-promotion”.

In ten years, so many things have changed in the industry. Therefore, in an effort to sharpen our toolbox to better help independent music thrive, we turn to you and the community at large to source some of the biggest pain-points for contemporary independent music-makers and practitioners. None of the questions are mandatory and you do not have to provide any information about yourself if you don’t want to. The information collected with this form is stored and encrypted on a platform belonging to Basspistol. And the insights it might provide will be open-source intelligence.

Please help us spread this survey as widely as possible!
