SoundCloud is an online audio distribution platform which allows musicians to collaborate, promote and distribute their music.
The company was established in August, 2007, in Berlin, Germany, by sound designer Alex Ljung and artist Eric Wahlforss. It had the intention of allowing musicians to share recordings with each other, but later transformed into a full publishing tool which also allowed musicians to distribute their music tracks.
