About Tribe of Noise
Founded in The Netherlands in 2008 Tribe of Noise is a true musician-centric community and 'music for business' service company. Main objective: Creating fair and sustainable business opportunities for talented artists. Over 34,000 Tribe composers, singer songwriters, producers and performing artists from 194 countries are part of the Tribe of Noise online community. Creative Commons wrote a wonderful story about us in their book MADE WITH CC. Our story starts on page 139.

Our revenue models include:

A tribe for musicians

As a musician you can either upload your music to your profile in the community (under a CC 4.0 by-share alike license) or to our Tribe of Noise PRO licensing platform (under a non-exclusive exploitation contract). What’s the difference? Read about it here.

Depending on the quality, your music can also be featured in our In-store Music Service. This means millions of people shopping and dining around the world will be listening to your music!

On our Contests / Opportunities page you will find several challenges that can get your music to a higher level. Get your music played in restaurants, shops and hotels. Win your music on limited edition vinyl records and more!

A licensing platform for creative professionals

If you are a video producer, game developer, animator, creative director, brand manager or other professionals in need for original music for your project, you’ve come to the right place! No traditional stock music here, but music made by real independent artists. Have you always wondered why music publishers, collection societies or others seem to be in your way: Why not connect with musicians directly through Tribe of Noise? There are two ways you can find, license and directly download the right music:
  1. Tribe of Noise PRO; Premium collection of all rights included, pre-priced music from emerging artists accessible through Tribe of Noise's optimized search engine for media professionals. After finding the perfect track, selecting the right license and paying online you are ready to go. No royalties to collection societies or any other additional charges have to be paid afterwards.
  2. Tribe of Noise Community; If you like to search for talented artists / great music in our community and you are ok with the two Creative Commons 4.0 BY SA license conditions then this is the place to go to.

Team Tribe of Noise

We believe in a world where creative spirits are optimally enabled to legally share their product with their public. We believe that musicians must be enabled to complete their music in cooperation with fellow musicians from all over the world. We respect record companies and copyright organizations, but also the freedom of choice by musicians to make their music available in a different manner.
