Wonder Content Creators Get Epidemic Sound Music for Soundtracks

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN--(Marketwired - Mar 13, 2014) - Wonder PL, the new video sharing platform driving the evolution from user generated content to video created by experts, is giving its producers unlimited use of Epidemic Sound's music library for creating soundtracks.

Wonder PL is focused on the core themes that people care about most -- Culture, Wellness, Home & Family, Food, the Mind, and Entertainment. The new video sharing platform features original and exclusive content from some of the world's creative thought leaders, such as Canadian National Film board, and great entrepreneurs British cosmetic retailer Space NK's founder and president Nicky Kinnaird, Michelin starred chef Tom Aikens, and polar explorer Inge Solheim.

Wonder PL's beautiful interface is free of advertising, purposefully creating an enjoyable viewing experience and delivering a highly targeted audience for content creators. The professional offering includes discovery and monetization tools that connect quality content creators directly with relevant audiences, with a disruptive business model that takes only a small flat fee and no additional charges or commissions.

Epidemic Sound is the first library of professional-quality soundtrack music that visual content creators can use in any country, on any platform, forever, for only a small fee. Unlike traditional production music libraries, no additional charges are ever required of anyone.

"Epidemic Sound is really smart, and fixes a long-standing problem for any producer whose content is watched online around the world on a variety of devices," said Wonder Founder and CEO Sofia Fenichell. "There will always be times when you want that song by a popular artist, but for 90 percent of the music used in professional productions, the Epidemic Sound method, in my opinion, is how that music will be licensed from now on."

Each of the 25,000 music tracks in the library is tagged and formatted for Epidemic Sound's advanced search and editing tools. Each track is split into STEMS -- individual tracks where the instruments can be heard and edited separately -- resulting in over 100,000 sound files available for use.

The tracks in the Epidemic Sound library have been created by more than 200 composers who are screened and mentored by a select production team led by company co-founder Peer Åström, an award-winning producer with the world record for the most ever entries on the U.S. Billboard/iTunes chart, and productions for Madonna, Kelly Clarkson and Enrique Iglesias. In addition to his work at Epidemic Sound, Åström produces all of the music for the FOX hit show Glee.

"What makes Epidemic Sound different is we don't represent music, we own it, so content creators never have to deal with collecting societies and the threat of lawsuit or their videos being pulled," said Oscar Höglund, Epidemic Sound co-founder and CEO. "And, by paying for the music when it's created, we're giving today's generation of composers a new and better way to make a living making music."
