Our Story

 
 

Future proofing the present and restoring the past while validating and verifying the accuracy of all assets and credits.

VEVA Sound (formerly BMS/Chace) was founded in 2002 and has offices in New York City, Los Angeles, Nashville and London. For the past 17 years we have worked to define, create and implement the standards for how sound recordings are preserved and monetized. In 2008, The Recording Academy's Producer and Engineers Wing partnered with VEVA Sound and The Library of Congress to create a standardized protocol for music-related metadata that would travel with recorded music projects from inception to archive. Other partners in this project include many of our clients: UMG, Sony, EMI and Disney Music Group. The output of this project was a schema we created that was then adopted into DDEX. This schema is the underlying foundation of the DDEX RIN message. We are so proud to have been involved in the inception of efforts to define how studio metadata and credits are used within the Digital Supply Chain.

Through these partnerships with The Library of Congress, DDEX, The Music Business Association, The Recording Academy, NDSA and NDIIP, we are actively at the forefront creating technologies which allow our clients to identify and properly credit their music collections, whether they be legacy recordings stored on analog or digital tape or current born digital projects. Working closely with our clients within the major labels, A&R, A&R Administrators, producers and engineers for over 17 years, VEVA Sound has the expertise, experience and knowledge to build and maintain technology that has been used and vetted by thousands of clients. Our platform, Asset Connect, is the leading asset management system built specifically for the music industry and is used by major labels in North America and Europe. It is the first platform in the world to implement the DDEX RIN standard - which was released in Berlin in 2016.
