Art+Logic Harnesses Technical Excellence and Design Elegance to Tackle Software and Hardware “Impossibles”

Art+Logic has been cultivating the creativity and skill required to navigate challenging software and hardware development projects for nearly 30 years. An all-remote team of North America-based developers and designers, the firm has worked with many household names, including Apple, Google, Trader Joe’s, and NASA, and with highly specialized companies doing everything from monitoring pipeline safety to assessing health risks.

Depending on whom you talk with at Art+Logic, the team might be working to use neural networks and machine learning to tag the mood of particular musical instruments, or they may be tackling a thorny testing issue that uses IoT to do away with destructive or manual testing on infrastructure. They have developed apps with clients that empower physically challenged theater lovers to see more plays, and they contribute major tools and insights to audio technology standards that guide entire industries.

Art+Logic tackles these challenges by zigging where many other development companies have zagged. While others have specialized and narrowed their skill sets, Art+Logic remains committed to a language-agnostic approach that doesn’t limit itself to specific industries or device types. Instead, it focuses on coding the “impossible,” the projects and ideas others may shy away from.

Client needs and challenges come first, a perspective demanding great flexibility and curiosity. "We have learned that to serve our clients best, we need to apply the same flexible problem-solving approach we use in development to our relationships,” explains Paul Hershenson, Art+Logic’s Co-Founder. “We treat each client engagement as a unique puzzle to solve. We often act as consultants to early-stage entrepreneurs helping prepare them for a successful development effort, and then develop MVPs that can be smoothly handed off to in-house teams for ongoing development. In some cases, we act as long-term development partners on large, multiyear efforts. It’s never one size fits all. We respond to what our clients need.”

This ethos inspires intriguing projects within the company, designed to make the most of its broad skills and open mindset, such as its Innovation Network of specialist consultants (when you need a lean interface or better signal processing) and its Incubator Lab, which gives tens of thousands of dollars in development and design services to winning ideas.

The blend of nimble technical imagination, artful design, and thoughtful business relationships have made Art+Logic a secret weapon for dozens of high-profile and industry-leading companies. “It's a challenge to talk about our successes when we do so much work that requires our participation to be kept under wraps,” explains Art+Logic’s president Bob Bajoras. “Fortunately, when we sit down with a lead and develop that relationship into a project, our talented designers and developers are very effective at demonstrating our unique combination of skills, passion, and insistence on ‘doing the hard stuff.' We're a quirky bunch, and sometimes that's what a tough project needs. Designers and developers like ours are a rare breed.”

funk therapy: Cimafunk takes on America with a new Afro-Cuban groove

“Cimafunk” is the artistic name adopted by Erik Alejandro Rodriguez and a statement of his musical philosophy. “Cima” pays homage to the Cimarrones. “Runaway slaves fled to remote areas of the island in order to form their own free communities with a new culture, neither African nor colonial.” Cimafunk explains. “That Afro-Cuban identity has been essential to my music for a long time.” The name signifies an openness to sounds from all over that tradition, wherever music has the same zest for cultural mixing, joyful survival, and self-determination. From that perspective, American funk is another strand of African diaspora music, one that Cimafunk loves for its power to get people dancing. Cimafunk’s love affair with American sounds started early, when a lone Lionel Richie cassette provided the soundtrack to childhood rides in his uncle’s car. After eating, digesting, and recombining American music ranging from Marvin Gaye to Prince for years, Cimafunk is finally visiti…

Cultivating Wild Data: How Entertainment Intelligence Is Bringing Meaningful Analytics to the Streaming-Age Music Business

It’s fun to talk about data, its ubiquity and importance. It’s not so fun to make sense of a billion lines of data from multiple service providers for an entire label roster.
That is unless you’re Greg Delaney, the founder and driving force behind data analytics platform Entertainment Intelligence (Ei). The service has been quietly helping independent labels and distributors work with data like the majors do, analyzing playlist performance, setting meaningful benchmarks, and tracking spikes that pop out of deep catalog. Clients include Domino, Secretly Distribution, Sub Pop, Epitaph, Naxos, Concord Music Group and Zebralution, among others.
“If the indies all get together, you can have the tools that rival, if not surpass, what the majors can do,” Delaney states. “It’s hard for a big company to pivot quickly, but smaller labels can, with our support”
After founding Crowdsurge, a global fan-club ticketing company that worked directly with artists like Paul McCartney and Foo Fighters, Dela…

Eventric’s Master Tour Makes Touring Logistics and Revenue Management Even Easier with v3.0, Currently in Beta Testing

Live events and touring are a key source of revenue for artists, performers, athletes, personalities, and groups of all kinds. Yet the margins on tours are thin and the logistics wickedly complex. Technology and devices like smartphones have seeped into the business, but mass-market software products often don’t serve busy tour teams well.

SaaS company Eventric, the masterminds behind Master Tour, is a crew of former (and sometimes current) road warriors, seasoned tour managers and live event pros who know what touring demands. For over 15+ years, their products have supported the work of more than 125,000 live-event professionals, sweeping away a tangle of spreadsheets, group texts, and other unwieldy and fragmented tracking and messaging systems.

Based on multiple years of feedback from users, the latest version of Master Tour, MT3.0, is more streamlined and powerful in just the right areas. “We’ve worked really hard to pare down the number of clicks or taps needed to ge…
