iCompositions.com, a community for users of Apple’s GarageBand and other Mac music-creating applications, has announced Artist Podcasts, a new service allowing musicians to syndicate their music through iTunes and other Podcast-tracking applications.
For just $4 per month, Artists have the opportunity to embrace a new medium of music distribution. All of their music hosted on iCompositions will be put into a Podcast so their fans can download new songs (as well as older songs) to their computers and iPods automatically.
If that’s not enough, every Podcast is submitted to the iTunes Music Store so all of the artist’s music will be searchable alongside songs sold there. This also provides an easy method for subscribing to Podcasts. With automatic downloading, as iCompositions user “Babble” said, it’s “mom-compatible.”
Creating a Podcast has never been easier as artists don’t have to worry maintaining an RSS feed, adding iTunes’ special XML tags, or hosting the large media files. iCompositions takes care of all of that, leaving musicians to enjoy composing.
